WSD2013 to Focus on Modes of Exhibit

The application process to exhibit at World Stage Design 2013 has begun. The event will take place September 5 through 15 at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom.

The diversity of capturing design will be the theme of WSD2013. Not only an exhibition representing the work of individual designers, the event will create a center of activity for diversity, widening participation, and multicultural exchange making it relevant to the exhibitors. It will allow them to reflect on their individual practice in the context of global developments by meeting and sharing their work, process, and philosophy. WSD2013 will to allow a wider audience of students, teachers, and the general public to experience and form a greater understanding of the work of those who create the performance environment.

Along with the traditional displays of models, photographs, costumes, and drawings that WSD has always offered, exhibitors will have the opportunity to propose new presentation techniques. Recognizing the role of not only the scenographer and set, costume, lighting, and sound designers but the nontraditional performance creator and visual artist, WSD2013 welcomes those who create live performance moments.

The exhibition is open to any designer wishing to apply. Each application will be by production; therefore a designer who designed set, costume, video, lighting, and sound on one production, would be charged one entry fee. All exhibition applicants will have work displayed in a online catalogue. If application exceeds the physical spaces available in Cardiff, a panel of international curators representing the OISTAT Scenography Commission will make a final selection. (This selection will focus on equal representation of nationality, fields of design, and aesthetic quality)
