This Is a Costume Drama ()

Produced by

The Dietrich Group and World Stage

Creator: D.A. Hoskins
Director: D.A. Hoskins


The Fleck Dance Theatre


April 29th, 2015 – May 2nd, 2015


The Dietrich Group’s ambitious new production binds together a dizzying array of historical, pop, scientific and religious inconography, characters and situations. It forms a knot of influences and references that refuses to be untied. Elaborating artistic director DA Hoskins’ work as a sculptor who uses the material of dance, This Is a Costume Drama reveals how we transform, how we put on masks and how we celebrate – all as it turns the theatre into a landscape built for graphic spectacle. It’s a sexy, quirkily adult game of adornment, where the transformation of the exterior exposes a flash of inner life. (
