The students and staff of the BA Theatre Design course welcome you to the 2017 Degree Show. This exhibition celebrates their final year achievements and reveals the extraordinary breadth of creativity and professionalism that these students offer.
Over the past year the graduating students have used the wide range of theatre design skills that they have gained in years one and two to create some incredibly innovative and inventive set and costume designs. They have worked on collaborative and independent projects and the results are exhibited here. They have forged exciting and productive working relationships with choreographers from London Contemporary Dance School and Middlesex University, and directors from East 15 Drama School and the New Directions Festival held here at Wimbledon College of Arts.
They all have experience of designing for a wide variety of contemporary theatre and so this show includes designs for traditional theatre spaces, site-specific venues, installations and films. The world of contemporary theatre is both challenging and incredibly rewarding. All of these students have the skills, ingenuity and energy that they will need to success in this competitive arena. We wish them all every success as they leave Wimbledon to create the theatre of tomorrow.
