Abstract

ABSTRACT OF THE THESIS

Journey

by

Alina Bokovikova

Master of Fine Arts in Theatre (Design)

University of California, San Diego, 2011

Professor Judith Dolan, Chair

I am always in a Journey

At the speed of a modern jet.

Being at UCSD is a nice landing-

Fantastic support,

Wise mentoring,

Feeling like home,

Courage to continue the Journey...

But now I am a pilot in the jet

I know the direction,

I am strong,

I am ready.

It happened because

I was dancing with Fairies

Then exploring Refraction

I won my surreal dream in Camino Real

And had a baby boom with Generation.

Also, I was sixteen at Phantom Band

Experienced work on the film Stereoblind,

Had meet Joe Turner, Come and Gone

Experimented with Crossing Boundaries.

And

Finally, Hedda Gabler,

"The Beautiful Hedda Gabler"

Tears, strong concept, simple lines.

Now I can design anything,

Unlimited Theatrical Costumes.

I enjoy the whole process:

Bringing sketches into existence,

Draping fabric on a form,

Thinking,

Fitting,

Choice,

Light,

Delight!!!

Theatre is a Journey

In the speed of a modern jet

I am a Costume Designer.

I have the direction.

I am strong.

I am ready.
