Typically, upon completion of this module, the student will be able:
- To analyse the role and employment of stage design within the construction and presentation of public performance.
- To employ a vocabulary and practice sufficiently developed to enable the formation and articulation of initial design concepts.
- To demonstrate an increased sensitivity for the structures and qualities of space, and the consequences within their reorganisation.
- To employ research material (both documentary evidence and physical resources) that supports and informs a design proposition.
A series of inter-related practical assignments explored and analysed across ten distinct workshop seminars developing perceptual awareness and methods of articulation through individual responses to a shared brief.
These workshops lead into and inform the production of a theoretical design/scenographic proposition.
The weekend workshop brings diverse design disciplines together to collaborate in the conception and fabrication of a themed 'event'.
