New Models: Design for Performance
For this talk we are joined by two members of the Bristol Design Assembly, set and costume designers Rebecca Wood and Max Dorey. They will be discussing how they work as designers in theatre.
For this special lunch time talk, supported by Bristol Old Vic's Ferment, Rebecca and Max, will touch on the hisory of theatre design and reflect on their processes when approaching work and explore how it could work differently in the future.
Rebecca and Max are both members of Bristol Design Assembly, a group of South West based set and costume designers who meet monthly to discuss their practice, the industry and support each other. In this, their first public talk, they want to celebrate the pioneering nature of design, and question the line it treads between facilitation, collaboration and artistry
Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment centres on artist development by representing a vibrant community of theatre-makers from Bristol and the South West that they support to develop exciting and adventurous new work. Ferment Fortnight is currently on, check out the programme here
