In spring of 2006 the stage design students and pedagogues  from the Theatre Faculty, Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU) and from the London College of Fashion prepared together an international project – LES – THE FOREST. It was based on two plays – The Insect Play by Čapek brothers and The Midsummer nights Dream by W. Shakespeare and B. Britten.

In the beginning of the project they cooperated together using the internet connection and web camera and then they met both in London and in Prague. The students created together costume objects, masks and theatrical make up based on the characters from both of the plays.

As a result of this cooperation there has been developed an unique costume design performance using different dramatical situations from Čapek´s and Shakespeare´s play. There are more than 80 costumes objects, no words –but  music, dance, stage movement, lights and colours.
