Today the first costume fittings of the ballet "GO - a play for two" took place at Theatre Vanemuine, Tartu. "GO" is an original ballet staged by Teet Kask, based on the music by Lepo Sumera.
During the first fitting, dancers try on their costumes for the first time. Any adjustments that need to be made are marked down and costumes are redesigned to fit the special characteristics of each and every dancer. The costumes are then remade and evolve into a complete outfit over several fittings.
The fabrics for the ballet are mostly ordered from Germany, though some of the materials have been found in vintage shops and some are fabric remnants rescued from large textile stores. The central colour used is vibrant orange - the color of the beginning and end - hue of the sunrise and sunset.
The design is quite minimal and uses geometric shapes, drawing inspiration from the works of the Italian Futurists and Soviet Constructivists in the beginning of the 20th century.
The premiere of “GO” is on October 25th 2014.
