A theatre or opera performance is beginning. Everything is running perfectly. The singers’ voices ring out, and the costumes emphasize the splendour of the production.
But how much work is actually behind this?
For well over 100 years, the costume workshop of art + event | Theaterservice Graz has preserved the knowledge of the art of producing costumes. For the first time, exciting insights are now being given into this unique work, within the framework of a tour.
The tour of the art + event costume workshop shows the exciting formation of costumes, or rather, of the entire costume design from the sketch to the individual, handmade works of art that are ready for the stage, on a total area of 3,950 m². You will be led through the ladies’ dressmaker’s or gentlemen’s tailor’s departments, crafts, millinery, the shoemaker’s and an extensive fabric store – together with the production office, these departments are united under one roof in the art + event costume workshop.
On 13 June 2012, art + event | Theaterservice Graz was awarded the “Erlebniswelt Wirtschaft - made in Styria“ seal of quality. The tours of the costume workshop that have taken place since then were developed in collaboration with Creative Industry Styria and implemented by the edsign agency and our internal creative team.
