Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, in association with OISTAT, present Jean-Guy Lecat's The Essential Performance Space: An Exploration of space, design and performance July 11 to 16 at the college's Castle Grounds, Cathay's Park, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom.
This workshop is presented in coordination with OISTAT, The International Organization of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians (www.oistat.org), and a portion of the funds raised by the workshop will fund future OISTAT projects and scholarships.
This workshop for performance creators examines the dynamics of space, performance, and inter-disciplinary collaboration within theatre. The workshop explores the dynamics of the audience-performer relationship, the essential simplicity of design, and the collaborative ethos.
Supported by Sean Crowley and Ian Evans of RWCMD and co-designers of the Prague Quadrennial Scenofest stage, Mr. Lecat's workshop allows international participants to share in a journey that will reveal the full potential of working to create performance within a truly focussed environment that refines spatial design to its essential purity.
The workshop is designed for 40 to 50 participants, working in four to five groups over five days. It includes a series of lecture presentations and visits to performance spaces to explore the theories that Mr. Lecat has applied throughout his career.
Fee for the workshop is £528.75 inclusive of VAT. All inquiries should be sent to Sean Crowley, Director of Drama, Vice Chair Oistat Education Committee at Sean.Crowley@rwcmd.ac.uk.
