Jump to comments
This 10-day intensive summer school is for anyone aged 17+ who is interested in developing skills in management and technology for the stage.
It may be useful for you if you are wishing to pursue a pathway to further training or explore a career in stage, technical or production management, including lighting and sound. The short course may also be of interest to teachers or theatre directors wishing to take part in a professional development activity to enhance your knowledge of technical processes.
By the end of the short course you should have:
- developed an awareness of the full production process
- worked with experienced industry professionals to develop specialist skills
- gained insight into how management and technology functions within the performing arts
- gained insight into how lighting and sound design works within the performing arts
- participated in a collaborative practical project culminating in a presentation
This short course will be delivered by the Royal Conservatoire’s Management and Technology Lecturers and visiting guest specialists in our industry-standard design and production workshops at Speirs Locks Studios.
Week one will consist of practical workshops and teaching in all areas of management and technology, including lighting and sound for performance. Students will be set mini projects throughout the week to apply this new knowledge in a practical and meaningful way.
The second week involves working together with design students and performers on a semi-produced collaborative project. This is an opportunity for you to practice your specialist learning and knowledge as a team and in a more holistic and authentic way.
This summer school will culminate in a tangible outcome in the form of a presentation on the final day of the short course. This may provide you with evidence for portfolio building as well as an opportunity to present your creative work to others.
