If you know me at all, you might think this is the floor of my bedroom. But then, you’d say, there’s so much floor visible, so it can’t be that. Yes, this is the typical process of picking costumes for a low-budget dance piece that wants to look amazing. (This particular view is from RIBS 2008.) And it’s that time again…Roux is a new quintet that premieres this weekend at the off-Broadway Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater just off, well, Broadway near Columbus Circle (details in the Upcoming page). So today I spent some magical moments with our costume designer, the lovely Kylie Fife, watching and pretending to assist her hocus pocus as she transformed the contents of about 8 closets into a cohesive, bold aesthetic statement. All I’m saying is, neon orange never looked so elegant. Thanks, Fife!!
