Mabou Mines describes itself as “an artist-driven experimental theater collective generating original works and re-imagined adaptations of classics.” The company was founded in 1970 by artists including director Lee Breuer and composer Philip Glass. The company has called upon Meganne George’s costume design talents for several critically-acclaimed productions.
Meganne designed costumes for Mabou Mines’ DollHouse, which debuted in Brooklyn in 2003. By 2012, Mabou Mines performed the show in more than 30 cities around the world, including Oslo, Paris, Jerusalem, Bogata and Moscow. Meganne also designed costumes for the French-produced 2008 film adaptation of DollHouse.
Meganne’s 2003 costume design for Cara Lucia received a nomination for an American Theatre Wing Hewes Design Award. The company developed that show into Lucia’s Chapters of Coming Forth by Day, which debuted in 2007. That production won the 2011 award for Best Design at the 1st Irish Festival in New York City. Mabou Mines has performed Lucia’s Chapters across the country, and at the National Theatre of Norway (2013) and the Brighton Festival in the UK (2015).
