Due to the devising process, the costumes were designed in collaboration with the acting ensemble, and were never officially rendered. 

"This ensemble-driven devised piece featuring the graduating MFA in Acting candidates explores "satyagraha" or non-violent resistance and the violent reactions that meet it. Crisscrossing space and time from Mahatma Gandhi in South Africa and India to Martin Luther King in the American South, this physically-charged, multi-disciplinary work features the stories of two powerful women: Kasturba Gandhi and Coretta Scott."
