Costume Design

Our dance narratives follow a naturalistic theme, as do the materials used to create our costumes. We hire independent costume designers to help create the design, who in turn collaborate with artists who specialise in using organic plant dyes. Our ethically sourced materials are imported from India and Nepal. Tani insists on personally meeting with independent textile traders, to make sure the pieces designed are eco friendly. Recycling fabrics and costumes is another way TGDC tries to help sustain the environment.
