The Road Forward – Costume Design

At the end of January this year, I was twice blessed – to do the costumes for THE ROAD FORWARD and to work with Marie again. Created and directed by Marie Clements of red diva projects co-produced with Michelle St. John,… THE ROAD FORWARD is a multi-media musical composed by Jennifer Kreisberg, and featuring an award-winning ensemble including Michelle St. John, Cheri Maracle, Jennifer Kreisberg, Wayne Lavallee, Shakti Hayes, Russell Wallace, Mwalim, Ostwelve, Doug Proulx and Maurice Nahanee.

Inspired by the groundbreaking movement of the Native Brotherhood and Sisterhood of British Columbia and dedicated to the countless First Nations women who have disappeared on BC’s Highway of Tears and the Downtown Eastside, this blues/rock musical integrates traditional and contemporary art forms, historical media archives and interactive live performance.”…

I am still reverberating with the impact of the performance and loved being a part of such an awesome group of artists and performers – everybody was so dedicated and gave their whole hearts and souls to this stunning project.
