Costumes and masks play an important role in theatre as they visualise the character and story and give the audience an idea of who the characters are and what the themes represent. Theatre costumes have a long history dating back to ancient Greece. In Greek tragedy and comedy, actors wore simple costumes that highlighted their character and acting. They wore masks and robes that symbolised their social position and mood.
A costume can be just a box with two holes or it can be more complicated like the example of folded paper. Nowadays, there are no clear rules for costumes in theatre. Costumes can be minimalist or detailed and actors and directors are often creative in the way they use costumes to tell the story. In theatre, the motto “less is more” often applies, as the aim is to tell a story with simple means.
