Yale Joins Theater Designer Event in New York

The graduate theatre design programs at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and Yale School of Drama will present the inaugural DESIGN MEETING at the Pope Auditorium at Fordham College at Lincoln Center, 113 West 60th St., New York, May 29-31.

The event will be coordinated by John Coyne, lecturer in design at Yale School of Drama and director at Theatre Projects Consultants, working with Christopher Barreca, head of scenic cesign at CalArts, Susan Hilferty, chair of design at Tisch, and Stephen Strawbridge, co-chair of design at Yale.

DESIGN MEETING 2010 serves as an introduction of graduating MFA scenic, costume, lighting and sound designers to the professional theatre community through a project gallery and portfolio presentation. The focus of the event will be on the dialogue between professional theatre directors, choreographers and designers in a series of one-on-one conversations. The event will also promote an exchange of ideas among the graduating designers themselves.

The organizers hope to make DESIGN MEETING an annual event. For more information, theater professionals may contact John Coyne at 203-299-0830.
