Clothes make the Donkey

Clothes make the Donkey

Isn’t it amazing how mere choice of costumes brings to life completely different characters.

During our first try-outs last week we spent a good deal of our time creating different costumes for our donkeys. In the short improvisations that ensued these costumes brought to life very different characters. The donkey giant heads are always the same ones.

 

Donkey Burglar

Costume no.1 is this rocker style donkey with leather jacket and fingerless leather gloves who just breaks into our rehearsal room.

Elderly Donkey Couple

Only a few minutes later the burglar donkey has transformed into this friendly elderly gentle-donkey who poses for a photo together with this wife.

The Donkey Girl

The next Giant Head character is only just one costume change away: The elderly donkey lady transforms into this young donkey girl.
