The Masters programme in Urban Scenography -managing spaces in contemporary cities- addresses subject matter ranging from the basics of traditional scenography to a modern interpretation and design of urban locations. The lecturers are professionals who work in theatre, virtual film and motion pictures.
This programme includes on-site experiences in urban locations such as real theatres. Through a continuous re-creation process, students will build performance experiences in the city, theatres and virtual spaces, while they compile data, memories and ideas from their shared relationship with the urban territory.
Students will hone their ability to analyse urban reality as they improve their knowledge of and expertise in stage design, by producing a storyboard, managing lighting, and building sets. After obtaining different levels of experience, such as local memories of their city, personal views, perspectives and the historical atmosphere, they will design and create theatrical spaces involving the natural complexity of the disciplines of architecture, theatre and contemporary cities.
The programme boasts institutional connections with other international educational institutions such as the Institute of Design and Technology at Zurich University of the Arts (idt-ZHdK, Switzerland), the Central School of Speech and Drama at the University of London (CSSD, England) and the Faculty of Fine Arts at Brno University of Technology (VUT, Czech Republic).
