Costume Design and realisation for Mother Ubu character from UBU ROI written by Alfred Jarry. UBU ROI is a reflection of our society in an allegoric scenario in which I design all the characters being childrens toys. Ubu can me every man, every man can be a toy. This play has been written for puppet show. Marionettes are moved by the person who is using their strings. Toys are exactly the same as marionettes, children give them character and personality, they move them and put them into the stories and the worlds they create by using their fantasy. My costume for Mother Ubu has the shape and the construction of the toddler colourful ring toy. She is colourful too, flexible and she is using her costume as a dress, as a cave where she can hide in, or find the treasure in there. Her costume is a bed, a boat the actual treasure.
