The art of transformation requires attention to the details. To believe and empathize with the character of the theatrical play is possible only when the actor accustomed to the role and costume subtly emphasized his essence. Especially if a person plays an animal or other creature. Costume designer here is to complement the image subtly, do not overdo it with the elements, and not to spoil the picture. And such a task was set for the scenic artist Daria Held and the director of the play "The Dogs" based on the novel by Konstantin Sergienko "Goodbye, Ravine!" (authors of the theatrical adaptation L. and A. Chutko). Sad, truthful and incredibly touching story of the homeless dogs, telling how the animals were "in a ravine" metropolis. Something is reminiscent of Gorky "The Lower Depths" - the play raises questions about the heavy share and sentimental situations happening around us. Inhuman devotion and dedication of the dogs left no one indifferent. Largely due to the fact that the features of the life and features of the characters were reflected in the costume details. Scenic artist used patches, make-up, color, details to create the story of each character.
