15 August at 10:00 – 20 August at 18:00
(Taught by Motley Alumni Sarah Paulley & Will Holt)
Scenehouse, Scotland’s new centre for performance design, has teamed up with the Arches to create a new short course in design for live performance.
Scenehouse Intro is an intensive one week summer school fusing core design skills with creative insights from leading practitioners, providing not only a gateway to further study but also a comprehensive and thorough introduction to work in the creative industries.
Students will be guided through the core skills of script analysis, working at scale, and model making, as well as exploring the role of the scenographer/designer in various styles of production – from conventional theatre to collaborative devised work and live art. On top of that, Scenehouse will be inviting guest speakers to give lectures and workshops explaining how they place imagery and visual creativity at the heart of their practice: keep an eye on the news page of the Scenehouse website for a taste of the kind of speakers involved.
For more information or to book your place, please contact Scenehouse on or call Sarah on 07711 049946
