Student working on a research project.


If modern scenography lies at the intersection of live event, architecture, and computer science, how must the theatre artist's lab evolve? What are the tools the designer should have accessible in order to support the "play"? How does the role of the art administrator evolve in this new landscape? These questions should be answered by identifying the time honored versus future practices of the set, lighting, costume, and sound designer, as well as the stage manager. The revolutionized practices as stated by the student investigators will feed into a submission to Live Design magazine and will provide foundation for production methods in the 2010-2011 Theatre and Dance season as well as affiliated work.
