Norway Project Support, 2015
As costume designer undertaking a Master’s at Norway’s innovative Oslo National Academy of the Arts, she worked with Christina Lindgren, internationally known for her costumes for musical theater, opera, theater, and dance performances. In Norway, Peterson had her designs for the world premiere of Charles Mee’s play soot and spit in Arizona accepted, and was part of the the team that designed Norway’s student submission to the 2015 Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space. Our award allowed her to attend this unique live exhibition of world theater and scenography, as well as create a national costume reflecting her multinational Turkish-American-Norwegien identity.
