Design Statement

The story starts from the three people — Japanese poet, Takuboku Ishikawa (1886-1912), his lover, Tomi, and his best friend, Tetsu, who reunite in front of the monument of Takuboku Ishikawa in 1922. Then the story suddenly shifts back to the mysterious trip taking place in a ryokan at a hot-spring resort, and it is divided into each character’s memory. As the narrative perspective is changing constantly, the truth and belief are switching and refuting mutually until the cruel but heartbreaking fact finally breaks through the confusion.
It is a warm but sad story packed with mysterious atmosphere. To sustain the truth chosen to be believed by each person, in the part of costume design, I use realistic forms of Taisho-Period(1912-1926) kimonos and classical colormatching. Also, I make sure the costume in scene2 are all in the same keynote of color which is warmer than usual to impress the 'ever' friendship between the three of them.


Jhing Ying Chang

In 2016/09, I graduated from the Theatrical Design and Technology Department in Taipei National University of Arts(TNUA) majoring in costume design. During the four years in college, I learned some sewing and tailoring technique, some knowledge of fabrics, makeup, and plenty of design process and especially much interesting practical experience about theatre. Now I am working on a piecework basis including costume design, stage makeup, costume management. Sometimes I work with my professors and teachers as assistant of costume design or wardrobe production. In Taiwan, few people understand what theatre is and how theatre is. I am now a freshman in this field with not-too-much ambition, In fact, I really don't know how it will be in the future of theatre in Taiwan, but I cherish all the inspiration I get and all the people I met from each production and work in theatre. Each time is a new beginning and refreshing.
