About the course

Explore the creative application of design elements, including light, space, and costume, discovering how to shape live performance and generate meaning for contemporary audiences.

This course allows you to gain an understanding of the theories and concepts of designing for performance while also expanding your own creative practice.

You’ll use our specialist facilities to explore the performance experiences that can be created with light, space, objects, costume, sound, and digital technologies like pervasive media.

You’ll also examine contemporary performance practices, from the immersive and participatory to those staged outside of the theatre, within their wider social, cultural and economic contexts.
