Kym Barrett

Costume and makeup designer
TORUK - The First Flight

Award-winning costume designer Kym Barrett grew up in a nomadic environment on Christmas Island off the coast of Australia before moving to Sydney where she would eventually study design at the National Institute of Dramatic Art. Her creations on Romeo & Juliet (1996) garnered great attention.

This lead to a collaboration with sibling directors Lana and Andy Wachowski, starting with The Matrix (1999). Barrett's original and now iconic designs catapulted her to fame, with the sleek and sexy costumes from The Matrix Trilogy (2003) being imitated and absorbed into the global fashion trends of the day.

Barrett has mastered a vast array of theater, TV and film genres including action, adventure, animation, circus, comedy, crime, fantasy, horror, mystery, opera, period (1800s-1980s), romance, science fiction, and thriller. She debuted at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 2012 having designed the costumes for The Tempest directed by Robert Lepage.

Her other film work includes Three Kings, Gothika, Monster-in-Law, Rumor Has It, Green Hornet, The Amazing Spiderman and The Nice Guys (2016). The movies Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending highlight Barrett's enduring association with the Wachowski siblings. TORUK – The First Flight is her second collaboration with Cirque du Soleil after TOTEM.
