SCENEHOUSE INTRO 2017
April 16th – 20th Fee Information
This intensive five day course gives students a packed and dynamic learning experience that fuses core theatre design skills with creative insights from working practitioners.
Scenehouse Intro is aimed at participants from a wide range of related disciplines who want to find out if designing for performance is the career path for them.
The INTRO course is also a dynamic creative experience in itself - and is ideal for students who would like to work on their creative approach to 3d design - or explore model making in a theatrical context.
The four day schedule will introduce students to the key creative processes of scenography, exploring the designer’s role as visual story teller and image maker, as well as focusing on the hard skills of design including script analysis, working at scale and model making.
The relationship between set, lighting, costume and sound design will also be considered, with input from practicing professionals.
Ultimately the course is constructed to replicate an overview of the creative path theatre designers take to arrive at finished Set and Costume Designs. Learning is based on a linked series of practical hands-on exercises incorporating a studio period in which each participant works out their own design solution to a given text in the form of a model and/or set of costume designs.
Please believe that it not essential to be able to draw and paint! There are many other techniques you can apply.
Materials for this course will be provided, but students will need to bring a small tool kit comprising:
1:25 scale ruler, set square. pencils, sketchbook, scalpel knife, cutting board and metal ruler.
