Design, Crafts & Scenography Exhibition
This exhibition displays a wide range of work from students of the MA Scenography and the BA (Hons) Theatre Practice: Costume Construction, Prop Making, Scenic Art, Scenic Construction, Set and Costume Design, Lighting Design and Sound Design.
One of the unique features of the BA (Hons) Theatre Practice course is the way that specialist disciplines are able to focus on their area of study for three years in the dynamic context of collaborative work with all the other theatre-making disciplines.
The students on the craft pathways learn skills to develop effective making solutions and have an understanding of the high level of finish required, which is applied to all areas of performance and production.
The design students work with other theatre disciplines in production teams, so that they understand, respect and work effectively with all the people that they are likely to meet in professional practice.
The final year exhibition celebrates the work of 3rd year BA (Hons) Theatre Practice Design and Crafts students; this is an opportunity to see the work produced for the college public productions, course projects and off site projects and performances. You will be met by 2nd and 3rd year students to guide you around the exhibition and tell you more about the courses involved.
Through the context of exhibition, scenographic practices face particular challenges in re-presenting work that is time-based and ephemeral. However, these challenges offer an important learning ground for emerging designers since documentation enables retrospective analysis as well as a privileged domain for processual and projective developments. To this end, the MA Scenography exhibition 2012 focuses on works in-progress in order to reflect and hone in on design processes of creation. As intersections between past, present and future designs, these works are productively tentative and transitional.
