The Importance of Design

Location: City Hall 

In this workshop we'll look at the importance of set, costume, and lighting design by examining production shots. We'll try to give an over view of different styles of design using Peter Brook's "The Empty Space" to categorise the main genres of design. And we'll look at how the same show can be designed in massively different, but still widely successful ways.

Grace was the overall winner of the Linbury prize 2015 and regularly collaborates with the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. Grace writes a regular column in The Stage about her experience of being a set and costume designer. Grace is currently working on End of History (The Royal Court); One Night in Miami (Nottingham Playhouse and tour).
