The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and World Stage Design 2013 are currently seeking proposals for the competition to design a sustainable temporal theatre. The winning design will be built in Cardiff and house performances and events as part of the World Stage Design 2013 festival. Open to students and professionals from across all related disciplines, the structure must be weather and sound-proof and be designed using either existing and readily available building components or alternative sustainable elements. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2013. More information after the break.
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. 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. 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. WSD2013 is hosted by the Royal College of Music & Drama and is supported by the Welsh Government, OISTAT, the Ministry of Culture Taiwan, & the Society of British Theatre Designers.
