Sibylle Geiger

Painter and Costume Designer

Sibylle Geiger il suo lavoro per il teatroThese sketches of costumes and scenes testify to the essential role of art supporting art. Sibylle Geiger worked as a scenery and costume designer in Europe's most prestigious theatres. She employed the vocabulary of fashions from very different times to embrace the creative spirit of Plautus' comedies, Mozart's genius, Rossini's crescendos, Garcia Lorca's passion, Brecht's vision of society. She used her ability to imagine scenes and costumes reflecting each person's identity and personality to give voice to the visual idiom of authors as various as Samuel  Barber,  Lope de Vega, Giraudoux, Verdi, Gluck and Ibsen.

The work exhibited in the first two halls is a meeting point between artistic experiences which are not only visual but acoustic, as the artist ventured into the heart of the opera, drama and film, where notes, sounds and words dress the souls of the characters just as clothes dress their figures and the scenery or film set dresses their environment.  Languages that complement one another, arts that reinforce one another. For a Don Giovanni to be seductive, a Barber of Seville funny, a Madame Butterfly credible or a Medea sufficiently tragic, they must be wearing appropriate clothes and set against the right scenery.

For brings our dreams to life and tells our stories, which are imaginary but no less real for this. They stage the illusions, hopes, testimony of things each one of us has experienced, at least in part, to reveal them through images, dressed in new forms and set in unusual scenes.

These sketches are a precious key to interpretation of the cultural and artistic vicissitudes of a good half of the last century and, at the same time, an exciting compendium of Sibylle's creativity, revealing all the freshness of her vision as a person who experienced art as a source of emotional life and spiritual energy.
