Now available from Theatre Workout are Set Design Workshops, ideal for design students, but also for drama students who are interested in the many off-stage opportunities available.
Our recent debut workshop was a huge success! We had a dozen American university design students and their lecturer said:
"I love this workshop. My students need this experience because the industry is so different over here. This was a great experience and I feel I've learned a lot too".
Set Design workshops are not lectures, they are discussions designed to engage, inform, and improve awareness of the creative roles off stage. We discussed:
The make up and dynamics of the creative team
Types of productions and core differences between them
Factors which may impact your design work, such as duration of run, is it a single venue or tour, scale of venue, type of theatre, etc.
What is the creative process? Where does it start? How do you develop your own ideas?
Students were also set a couple of small group challenges, such as discussing key themes, ideas and elements for different stage locations, such as a church, a beach, or hospital, before discussing how designs can swap from one to another seemlessly.
A greater understanding of off-stage roles in theatre
Knowledge of the creative process and relationships between various members of the creative team
Approaches to design
Develop an appreciation of how design can bring the 'world' of the production to life
