NIDA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, the Bidjigal people. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

We also wish to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across this country's sacred homelands, and in particular, students and other First Nations members of the NIDA community.

ClaudiaClaudia is a costume designer from Brisbane, Queensland. With background roots in illustration, animation and film, she graduated from Griffith University’s Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor in Animation, majoring in art direction. Claudia’s passion for design in theatre, film and fashion is ultimately what led her to excitedly pursue a position in the MFA Design for Performance course.

Her design credentials at NIDA include Ghost Lights, a transmedia production spanning across five microfilms and a live performance, directed by Katy Alexander, and The Government Inspector by Nikolai Gogol, translated from Russian and adapted for two actors by Roger Pulvers, directed by Darren Gilshenan.

Claudia is a versatile and affable designer who hopes to work internationally in several mediums, one of her many interests being designing for ballet and opera, as music and movement have always been a source of inspiration to her.
