For The National Ballet of Canada’s premiere of The Firebird, Loquasto set the ballet amid the magnificent splendor of the pre-Columbian Mayan civilization. Richly imaginative, Loquasto’s designs are filled with colour, pageantry, fantastical sets and weird and wonderful costumes, which have an otherworldly aesthetic.
