Date posted: 12 Jun 2019Author: STC Production: The Torrents

An exciting Black Swan Theatre and Sydney Theatre co-production, newsroom drama/comedy The Torrents features a nine-person strong cast, all clad in full period costuming of 1890s Australia.

Below, Black Swan teaching artist Libby Klysz has a rehearsal room catch-up with The Torrents set and costume designer Renée Mulder. From the wealthy to the working class, Renee takes us through the trends of the period, and explains her process of researching, designing and creating the detailed Victorian clothing you'll see on stage.
