Inanna is a play based on the ancient Sumerian poem, The Descent of Inanna (c. 1900-1600 BC) that chronicles the great goddess and Queen of Heaven Inanna’s journey from heaven, to earth, and to the underworld and back. It is possibly the oldest known tale of feminine self-discovery and transformation. My stage director felt it was important to underline the ritual quality of this text and in keeping with this idea with talked extensively about the symbolism of each piece of clothing and developed a costuming ritual that became an integral part of each performance. All our costumes had many onion-like layers that helped the actors transform from one character to another. For the costume designs I took inspiration from the art of the first cities but also from various fairytales I heard in my childhood and that have become part of my own “personal mythology”.
