Costume Designs for 13 Sunken Years

Designer Jan Bee Brown works in theatre, film and exhibition design. She has previously worked with Stellar Quines on the productions of Perfect Pie and The Clearing.

Her costume drawings for 13 Sunken Years capture the feel of the nordic setting and also fit each character in the story perfectly, from Eva whose life has always been by the river but who is terrified of swimming to her Gran who is losing her mind slowly but who loved to swim as did Eva’s Mother. The river was their lifeblood.

This performance was also live streamed as part of Stellar Quines’ ongoing commitment to explore using digital technology in live performance and making live theatre accessible to all.
