Benjamin Burton Costume Design and Dramaturgy

"Cabaret" produced by the University of Oklahoma in the Elsie C. Brackett Theatre.  My design for this production emphasized the Brechtian nature of the script by leaning into deconstruction and metatheatrical elements.  Large research influences on the costume design include Sebastian Droste and Anita Berber; Marlene Dietrich; and Josephine Baker.
