The World Stage Design Festival is now in its third year and has come to Britain for the very first time - and where better to host it than the beautiful Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
The festival is an international celebration of performance design, encompassing the disciplines of theatre, opera and dance.The week-long programme consists of an exhibition, live events, master-classes, workshops, presentations and seminars - there is even a specially constructed sustainable theatre.
As part of a Response workshop I was given the opportunity to have a good look at the exhibition. Along with a few other Young Critics - Elin Williams and Charlie Hammond - we have created a series of films, articles and photo galleries to give a taster of what the event was like.

Below is a short film made from some hastily taken photographs of the exhibition, apologies to the designers as their names do not always appear with their work.
The exhibition is an inspiring collection showcasing some of the very best international talent, both professional and straight out of university. It runs until the 14th September and is free of charge. Anyone interested in any aspect of theatre or design should definitely check it out.
