88333 Design for Stage and Theatre: Contemporary

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject introduces students to the specialised area of design for performances in theatre spaces. Using a contemporary script as a starting point, the student learns how to design for a stage production that expresses the script through set and costume design. A series of lectures, workshops, and assignments on: the design process, the history of appropriate stage and costume design, set design, costume design, script analysis, and associated technologies is delivered to support the design project. The project tests, through the use of a contemporary script, the understanding that the student has attained in reference to the key areas of theatre design. This is a multidisciplinary subject that brings together students to solve specific design problems through group and individual tasks.
