Friday 30th March 2012, V&A Hochhauser Auditorium, Sackler Centre, London, 10.30am-5.30pm
To coincide with the display Transformation and Revelation: Gormley to Gaga, the V&A is hosting a symposium. Invited designers and artists will explore the ‘staging of space’ including designing for site specific productions, dance, theatre and stadium shows. The Transformation and Revelation display is on show in room 104 of the V&A from 17th March – 30th September 2012, in conjunction with the V&A’s major exhibition British Design 1948-2012 and the conference British Design – Space and Place 1948-2012 this May. Exploring the theme of transformation, this display will reveal contemporary designs for performance by over 30 British Theatre Designers. It will provide an intriguing insight into the designers’ creative process and will include costumes, set models, photographs, drawings, sound productions and lighting designs. Designs include Sutra by Antony Gormley, War Horse by Rae Smith and Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour by Es Devlin.
