Featuring initial sketches, diagrams and photographs, this book provides an understanding of theatre design and its methods that appeal to beginners and enthusiasts, alongside students and theatre professionals alike. Behind the Scenes presents the imaginative work of a broad range of designers, including Peter Brooks, Ming Cho Lee, Les Brotherston, Miriam Buether, Robert Wilson, Robert Lepage, Pina Bausch and Rae Smith; and organisations such as Hotel Pro Forma, Glyndebourne, Station House Opera and Punch Drunk. Behind the Scenes covers a myriad of innovations, from traditional set designs, to those that push boundaries using immersive sets, or pop-up theatres in derelict locations; alongside organisations that use set design to social advantage, such as Cardboard Citizens.
