Aberystywth University


If you are looking for a radical and innovative approach to design in the context of theatre and performance, then our Scenography and Theatre Design degree is for you. Supported by internationally-recognized staff with a wide range of expertise, you will look beyond the established boundaries of set, costume, lighting and sound design to take a total view of the performance space.  You will gain an understanding of how the organization of space can be an artistic practice in its own right, taking into account the conventions of traditional theatrical disciplines such as set, lighting and sound. Through a combination of practical and theoretical explorations of the craft you will critically examine and engage with a wide range of contemporary practices from playhouse theatre to site-specific performance and from environmental theatre to performance installation. Studying Scenography and Theatre Design at Aberystwyth is your opportunity to develop your own design practice within or beyond the practice of theatre and performance.
