Seagulls, Volcano's 'astonishing, visceral version' of Chekhov's The Seagull, is appearing this summer in Scenofest at World Stage Design 2017 in Taipei, 1-9 July. The tour is supported by Wales Arts International.
Scenofest, a festival celebrating scenography, was devised by renowned scenographer and educator Pamela Howard in 1994. It sets out to engage professionals and students in the field of theatre design with a wide range of seminars, workshops, thematic exhibitions, performances, and presentations of leading practitioners in all areas of theatre design and technology.
OISTAT Scenofest has historically been held with the Prague Quadrennial since 2003 with over one hundred events in each session of ten days. Since 2013, Scenofest has formed new connections with World Stage Design.
The WSD2017 Exhibition features a selection of the most innovative designs from theatre designers across the globe. It will display 178 design works from more than 150 designers across 35 countries in five continents, at Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts at the Taipei National University of the Arts.
Since its launch in 2005, World Stage Design has attracted thousands of visitors and participants from across the globe. World Stage Design is a four-yearly event which provides attendees and participants with the opportunity to experience an inspiring programme of theatre design, performances, workshops, seminars and thought-provoking exhibitions.
