Could You Design a Sustainable Theatre?
World Stage Design 2013 is a celebration of International performance design from the world of theatre, opera and dance. The event will take place in Cardiff, UK in September 2013, hosted by the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and includes an exhibition as well as public performances and installations in non theatre spaces.
The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama is seeking proposals for a competition to design a sustainable temporal theatre, to be built in Cardiff, as part of the World Stage Design 2013 festival.
This competition is open to students and emerging practitioners from across all related disciplines; theatre architects, technicians and scenographers should all see this as an opportunity to develop and apply their practice. Collaborative proposals are also welcome.
The theatre will be built in the courtyard of the Anthony Hopkins Centre (adjacent to Cardiff castle) and must seat between 100 and 150 people. The structure must be weather and sound-proof and be designed using either existing and readily available building components or alternative sustainable elements. Full entry details available from the website http://www.wsd2013.com/competition/
All design entries will be exhibited on the WSD2013 online gallery, the best ten designs will be exhibited in Cardiff and the winning design will be built and performed in for the duration of the festival.
Digital submissions must be received by 1 March 2013
Registering interest is available through http://www.wsd2013.com/competition/
