Staging Places 2019: Performance Designers called to represent the UK at the Prague Quadrennial

Staging Places is a four-part initiative by the Society of British Theatre Design, beginning this January with applications opening to submit design work created between 2015 and 2019.  Every four years the Society of British Theatre Designers represents the work of performance designers based in the UK at the largest scenography event in the world. This year the process has been redesigned as a digital submission to encourage set, costume, lighting, sound, video and experiential designers across every genre of performance design including theatre, opera, dance, live art, circus, carnival and outdoor festivals to apply.

  • Designers can submit work from up to three different productions realised between 2015-2019
  • Submissions will make up an online gallery showcasing the extraordinary breadth of theatre design talent in the UK today
  • 12 pieces of design will be selected to appear at the Prague Quadrennial
  • A further selection of work will then be displayed in the Theatre & Performance Galleries at the V&A from 24th July 2019 to 5th January 2020.

Staging Places will also be hosting a series of regional events across the UK to engage with designers across a diverse range of media, many of whom may not yet consider themselves as performance designers. Key themes for 2019 are Design Creation, Design Realisation, Design Futures and Designers Taking the Lead.
