“I designed and put up this exhibition. I also designed a set for one of the shows, Bleak House. I also did costume design for The Good Person of Szechwan and then helping out on the other shows. I’m part of the theatre design group, so we collaborate a lot with the Acting course.
I chose the course because it’s few that do both making and designing, and don’t make you decide until the end of first year. You then start your second year specialising, and by third year your working on live projects. I love the backstage theatre buzz!
The collaboration is great! We get to collaborate with a lot of courses, particularly Make-up for Media and Performance. Each year gets better and better. When we give feedback, the course always tries to improve.
The director for Bleak House, David Glass, has invited me back on another project. I’m going to continue with set design.”
