A Series of Events by Freelance Theatre Artists...
Setting The Stage is a series of talks, discussions and events centred around the people who make theatre. Organised and run by freelance theatre artists, these events give people an insight into the creative processes of designing and making for performance. All proceeds from these events go to supporting the freelance artists who run and organise them.
From the National Theatre to the Nation. Scene/Change is a community of Stage Designers taking action for Theatre.
Over the past four weeks over 100 closed theatres and venues have been wrapped in tape installations, involving over 400 designers and volunteers.
Hear from Designers Simon Kenny and Ruth Hall and Production Manager Anna Fox, about how their idea of wrapping theatre buildings in pink tape spread across the nation.
This informal talk will go through the process of organising this series of tape installations, from initial concept through to national campaign.
Come along to hear more from Scene/Change, ask questions and be involved in the ongoing discussion around #MissingLiveTheatre
