Environmental Design in Theatre and Performing Arts

Supervisors: Prof Yeoryia Manolopoulou (first), Dr Jan Kattein (second)

I am studying environmental sustainability in the production of theatre and performing arts. I am observing scenography, rehearsal, construction and conceptual processes in traditional theatre settings and desigining experimental design and performance that responds and tests some of the constraints and opportunities in conventional practice with a view to finding new creative models of sustainable theatre.
