DVEMG Alumni’s exploration of gender identity shortlisted for the Linbury Prize

Vivien Lau, a DVEMG graduate recently graduated from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) Rochester with a BA (Hons) Design for Theatre, Film & Performance, was one of just 25 students to be shortlisted for the prestigious Linbury Prize for Stage Design 2017. The work she submitted for the award was inspired by the Greek comedy ‘Lysistrata’ by Aristophanes, and included a dance film and installation, together with costume design. Vivien explains: “’Lysistrata’ is about a group of women who implement a sex-strike to stop the war between Sparta and Athens. The play touches on gender stereotypes, and explores how after being underestimated by men, the women went on to change the course of history.”
