About

Studying on the Design for Performance pathway of the BA (Hons) Theatre Practice course at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, you will. be prepared to work creatively and professionally as a set and costume designer, receive intensive design training with industry-wide interaction, develop skills through speculative and realised performances at Central.

Overview

The course develops practitioners with a strong sense of direction and identity, and an ability to think conceptually. From the first year you undertake speculative design projects that will challenge and test ideas in a broad range of performance contexts, from text-based drama to opera, dance, site-specific performance and installations, under the guidance of professional directors, designers and choreographers. 

Collaboration

This Design for Performance course at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama prepares you to work creatively and professionally as a set and costume designer. You will learn through collaboration with other design and production courses, developing an understanding of the specialist practitioners with whom you are likely to work in your career, such as lighting and sound designers, puppeteers, constructors, stage managers and technical production teams.

As the basis of a collaborative approach to design, you will share some workshops with acting students, enabling a deeper mutual insight into each other’s practices and methodologies. The course provides opportunities to work on undergraduate and postgraduate productions of plays, musicals, devised productions, community theatre, puppetry performances and performance art projects.

Develop skills

You will develop necessary skills, including model making, technical drawing with AutoCAD, costume drawing and storyboarding using Adobe Photoshop, and the use of projected media. You will have the opportunity to put these skills into practice on realised projects in Central’s professionally equipped performance spaces.
