Scenography and costume design projects produced by UoWM students of the Fine and Applied Arts were among the participating works in the International Scenography / Costume design online exhibition of the School of Scenography, London. The UoWM students’ projects were supervised, organized and coordinated by Tassos Protopsaltou, Adjunct academic staff, Scenography / Costume Design Laboratory of the UoWM Fine and Applied Arts Department.
The distinctions were awarded to the collaborative work of the participating students Lea Kavvadia, Andas Bibiri and Maria Panagiotopoulou, for their work on Anton Chekhov’s Cherry Orchard, and Giouli Douka, Anastasis Mekeridis, Anta Bibiri and Maria Panagiotopoulou for their scenography and costume design work on the opera La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi. It is worth noting that Giouli Doukas’ and Anastasis Mekeridis’ work is based on historical buildings and areas in Florina (i.e. the buildings of Agia Olga and the City Hall), in an attempt to create a bond between local elements and international art.
The School of Scenography is focused on international research in Scenography and Costume Design from a practical, theoretical and research perspective. The Scenography / Costume design exhibition has been scheduled to be physically presented in London next March (conditions permitting), or it will take place at a later date.
