Working with… Designers is part of a series of workshops this season to strengthen relationships between creative team members, demystifying each other’s roles and allow time to reflect and hopefully improve understanding and communication next time they embark on a creative project. This season is primarily aimed at directors, theatre makers and producers who might be planning projects and looking to invite designers to collaborate.
This workshop will include…
How to find and approach designers and what you should ask from a designer when asking them to design a show with a team.
Knowing their role in a collaborative project and what skills they can bring to the planned project.
Discussion with directors and producers about how the creative and practical relationships can be managed and nurtured when working with a performance designer.
How to develop the best collaborative, working relationship before and during the production, communication of ideas and the how to balance the quality of design with time and budget.
