Typically, upon completion of this module, the student will be able:
- To demonstrate maturity and independence in both the conception and realisation of an independently devised project.
- To show an analytical and holistic overview of the nature and potential of installed scenographic composition.
- To participate in the negotiated appraisal of effective scenographic solutions in the context of a group explorative collaboration.
- To show a critical appraisal of the work and theories of a range of practitioners in the field of scenography.
- To present individual, appropriate and imaginative methods of scenographic representation and documentation.
A more intensely focused exploration of the scenographic process and its potential applications both within and beyond conventional theatre/performance practices. This will culminate in either, a production or an individual/group installation and its realisation in any available and appropriate location.
The form of this module will depend upon the contributions and personal research areas of those students selected.
Students wishing to be accepted on to this module will be interviewed and must have followed the relevant design practice modules during the English medium practical semester. At least 63% should have been attained in one of the areas that the student wishes to develop further to qualify for interview.
