Danielle Graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History and Film Theory at Concordia university in 2013. This degree has provided her with a vast knowledge base of (western) historical imagery and theory used in contemporary art and performance.
After taking intensive workshops of set and properties design & building in Stratford Ontario, Danielle has dedicated herself to creating for theatre and film. Be it in set, makeup, props or costume, danielle’s interdisciplinary background has enabled her to imagine and create the ‘full image’ on stage or on screen, paying attention to every detail to ensure the story is told through the design. Ever curious and connected to tactile crafts, Danielle is self taught, and has attended multiple creation workshops and academic conferences over the years, including the Prague Quadrennials of Space, Art and Design in 2011 and 2016.
Danielle moved to Berlin in 2013 to broaden her artistic experiences and worked on multiple large scale immersive and promenade theatre projects at the Schaubühne and Ballhaus Ost, as well as short films and classical plays produced by the DFFB and Deutsches Theatre respectively.
Danielle has been working at Le Grand Costumier since novembre 2016, and is enormously proud participate in the evolution of the project. Danielle hopes to co-curate educational workshops as part of the Grand Costumier’s mission to extend their resources to the artistic community and to continue the history of the collection by welcoming donations and new acquisitions to our treasure trove.
