Biography

Nadia Malik is a lecturer and researcher in Costume at the University of Huddersfield. Since 2002 her Costume work has encompassed new writing, original and adapted classics, opera, traditional folk and contemporary dance, musicals, site-specific and experimental devised work and live art. Recent credits include design for shows at the Greenwich and Docklands Festival, the Imperial War Museum, the V&A and for the award winning company Elastic Theatre.
Nadia is interested in how Costume design practice can engage an audience and communicate meaning within performance through costume-led processes and a collaborative approach to performance devising using the human body, movement and visual experimentation to develop character and narrative.
Nadia has taught at various universities including the University of the Arts London, and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. She has worked nationally and internationally as a performance practitioner and has exhibited costume work (physically and digitally) in group exhibitions such as World Stage Design and for the Society of British Theatre Designers.
