This study program aims to prepare students to shape dramatic space for theatre, opera, and ballet. Design for non-traditional, or site specific spaces, is also included in the program.
Our aim is to guide students in the creative process of mastering stage design as an authorial component of theatre making. Students will also master the technical and technological requirements of designing the stage space – including projection, lighting and acoustics. Our focus is on the designer as co-author of the theatrical performance, and author of the visual experience.
