88555 Design for Theatre: Special Performances6cp
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 either a classic or contemporary script and/or choreography as a starting point, students learn how to design for a stage production that expresses the performance through set and costume design. Areas of dance, opera, and performance art may form the basis for the project. A series of lectures, workshops, and assignments on: the design process, the history of appropriate stage and costume design, set design, costume design, script/score analysis, and associated technologies is delivered to support the design project. The relationship to the particular musical score is discussed as appropriate. The project tests the understanding that the student has attained in reference to the key areas of theatre design, through the synthesis of a design for a special performance. This is a multidisciplinary subject that brings together students to solve specific design problems through group and individual tasks.
