88444 Design for Stage and Theatre: Classics

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 classic script as a starting point, students learn how to design for a stage production which expresses the script through set and costume design. Delivered to support the design project, a series of lectures, workshops and assignments cover: the design process; the history of appropriate stage and costume design; set design; costume design; script analysis; and associated technologies. The project tests, through the use of a classic script, the understanding that the student has attained in reference to the key areas of theatre design. This is a multi-disciplinary subject that brings together students to solve specific design problems through group and individual tasks.
