About

Through past and present approaches to performance design, the Scenography courses at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama aim to explore dynamic and innovative interplays between the body, space and time, further informed by a variety of disciplines including film, sculpture, sound, digital media, puppetry, choreography and architecture. 

Overview

Some of the major innovations in performance practices over the past hundred years have been drawn from scenographic developments. The MA/MFA Scenography courses at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama approach scenography from multiple practical and theoretical perspectives to create new opportunities for experimentation and authorship.

  • Develop authorship through performance design, working with a dynamic interplay of practice and theory, informed by a variety of disciplines including film, sculpture, sound, digital media, puppetry, choreography and architecture
  • A balance of independent and collaborative work
  • A professional focus through mentors, tutors and industry partners

Our approach

With a balanced mix of collaborative and independent work, and a particular attention to the interplay of practice and theory, the courses include:
  • workshops and mentoring to explore speculative and operative uses/misuses of processes and tools, ranging from dramaturgy, model making and technical drawing to audio-visual media, casting, interactive sensor technologies and 3D printing;
  • studies in relevant historical and theoretical frameworks and contexts for understanding and developing practice.
