THTR401-- 3 words: barista, Renaissance, house plant--UNR, SPRING 2021

    The Renaissance was a period in European history that extended from the 15th to the 16th centuries. It included great discoveries in science, such as those by Copernicus and Sir Isaac Newton. Columbus was credited with discovering the New World in 1492. Kingdoms existed everywhere throughout Europe; the monarchy was alive and well. In addition, ballet came into being in the Italian courts in the 15th century and Shakespeare’s plays were featured in London.  Little of that had any bearing on the life of the peasant, laboring out in the fields all day just for enough subsistence to survive. Clothing ranged from opulent court fashion, to stage costumes, to the everyday garments of the field laborer or the innkeeper, one of whom was the barista. Although sources credit the etymology of the word to modern times as a server in a coffee type kiosk, for our purposes, it originated during post-Medieval times at an inn somewhere on the continent.

     When it came to fabric, Marco Polo had come and gone by 100 years when the Renaissance in Italy began. He had brought back extravagant materials from the Far East, the most important being silk. Other fabrics included leather, linen, wool and fur.

I was uncertain as to use all 3 words in the costume design or in the scene. The above drawing shows a Renaissance type coffee inn environment with house plants and the barista in her working outfit. It is a rough design from one found at the link below:
