About This Event

This exhibition melds the worlds of craft and theatre in presenting three unique textile works by Tucker Ellis that developed out of their original costume designs for Perchance Theatre’s 2022/2023 productions of “The Tempest.” On display at Newfoundland and Labrador’s Annex Gallery from July 7-August 4, 2023, these sculptural costume pieces relate to the three principal magical characters from William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, all of whom have become consumed by the island they have come to inhabit, whether they were born there, or have simply lived there a long time. It is magical place, organic and constantly growing, and the connection of these characters to the island is conveyed through fabric manipulation, heavy beadwork, embroidery, dye work, and other hand-embellishments that echo elements of the surrounding land and sea.
