Current MA student Ivan Kashdan recently completed 'Backdrop', a 5 x 10m triptych created on the Bloomsbury Theatre paint frame, formerly used by students on the Slade Theatre Design course, which closed in 2003.

The photos show the work installed in the Bloomsbury Theatre auditorium. 'Backdrop' will be returning to the stage next week as part of Platform 1 at Bloomsbury Theatre on the 4th and 5th May. Book your tickets now via UCL ticketing for a night of exciting performances by current Slade students.

With thanks to Ellen Frost at the Bloomsbury Theatre, Stephanie Nebbia, Liquitex and Colart.
