Spectacular costumes from Immigrants’ Theatre Project

Last week, director Marcy Arlin of Immigrants’ Theatre Project sent over these pictures of her production of Three Graces. The play, written by Ruth Margraff, ran for four days at the Ice Factory Festival last month. The play takes place in Crete during the Ottoman occupation and follows the story of blood brothers whose fate is determined by the horrid political situation. The play is accompanied by music from Nikos Birsco, featuring the Cafe Antarsia Ensemble. All photos by Alexander Karasev.

The show features costumes made using fabric and mannequins from MFTA. Both the costumes and the house piece were handmade from scratch by Irinia Kruzhilinia and a team of interns, and the craftsmanship is really impressive. The time and effort put into the look of the performance really shows. For upcoming pieces from ITP, please check out their website.
