Performance & Space DesignerScroll Down
During my time at RCSSD I have learnt the core skills that make up a designer, 3D AutoCad, model making and technical drawing, to name a few. As well as having the chance to learn about working in multi-disciplinary teams, how to have strong communicate skills and the importance of organisation and time management in projects. Using my design knowledge of how space affects an audience, I would like to design performative environments outside the traditional theatre space, particularly in the world of fashion. I believe that the storytelling style of theatre can be desirable within many different sectors of businesses to sell and prompt products and experiences.
"In a Complicité rehearsal room, we hope and expect everyone to join in any of our games as we are all in the same team. You joined in whenever asked, and your physical skills also helped the actors learn. Your observation of the rehearsals and constructive criticism were very useful. By seeing rehearsal, you knew what our requirements were in the design department and set about dealing with any issues immediately. It is rare to find a student who adapts well to devising and stepping into the unknown, and you did this with such ease."— Joyce Henderson, Director of 'Oranges are Not the Only Fruit' and Director at Complicité
Throughout the wide variety of shows that I have designed from Devised Theatre to Opera or Shakespeare to Dance, I have been faced with many challenges- sometimes practical ones and at other times personal ones. I have learnt never to be frightened in the face of challenge but instead to drive at the task with determination and passion and always with an eagerness to learn. I hope to be continuously learning as I transition into the world of fashion, developing my skills in budget management, problem solving and creative thinking. I know that wherever my career journey may lead me, the storytelling nature of the theatre will always play a role within my outlook and visualization of projects ahead.
