The Magnus Archives

Final Year 2nd Project

A Rusty Quill podcast translated into a three part theatre production, The Magnus Archives is full of themes of cosmic horror, madness and distortion. Nikola Orsinov was made of multiple circus performers from a Russian travelling circus. She tries to claim the world for the deity, The Stranger, which is the fear of losing who you are or being the only person you know. Her colours and silhouette are heavily inspired by the traditional circus colour palette and there are motifs of faces throughout the costume.
