When the classic work gets a sci-fi reinterpretation

The Austrian theater director Stephan Mueller asked Turner-Prize-nominated artist Goshka Macuga to collaborate on a reinterpretation of the classic opera Antigona, which opened at the Documenta Art Fair. When the new for our digital times includes singers on Segways and opens with a parody of the Star Wars scroll text, it requires one of a kind costumes.

Gareth Pugh, who has been designing for Lady Gaga, Roisin Murphy, and Beyonce, as well as for the ballet Carbon Life and opera Eliogablo, took on this theatrical challenge. In keeping with the opera theme, he not only designed costumes, but presented a pioneering digital experience, presenting the pieces in a 360-degree digital format. The project, born from the artist’s aspiration to break from 2-D design approach, guides users through four acts, responding to the stage production. The pieces are inspired by Pugh’s Spring 2012 exoskeletons looks, adapted for the opera.

Gareth Pugh,Lady Gaga,Roisin Murphy,Beyonce以及芭蕾舞剧“Carbon Life”和“Eliogablo”歌剧都有着了这个戏剧性的挑战。为配合歌剧主题,他不仅设计了服装,而且提供了开创性的数字体验,并以360度数字格式呈现。该项目产生于艺术家二维设计的方式,引导用户通过四种行为响应舞台制作。 这些作品的灵感来自于2012年春季的外观,适合歌剧。
