Christine Crook designs costumes for theater, dance, opera, and wildly strange performance art. She is the resident costume designer with Opera Parallèle and a company member of Shotgun Players. Recent credits include Black Rider (Shotgun Players), Powder Her Face (West Edge Opera), and Pancho Villa from a Safe Distance (Ballroom Marfa). Upcoming projects include Weightless (Z Space) and Dreams of Kitamura (UC Berkeley). Christine also independently presents abstract design-driven live art and is a co-founder of feminist performance collective Repulsive Women. In 2016, she was awarded a Bridging the Gap grant for her continued experimentation with costume design during a residency in Berlin with the Institut für Alles Mögliche. She has an MFA in costume design from UC San Diego and teaches costume design with University of San Francisco and Academy of Art University.
