About the workshop
This workshop will train the participants in the direction and management of technical theatre, looking at areas such as the construction and installation of sets, the installation and interaction of lighting, sound, and projection in the lead up to a production, and the interaction between a theatre production and a theatre venue during the installation and run of a show.
