"TIME AND SPACE"

The Society of British Theatre Designers is mounting TIME AND SPACE featuring some of the best work by contemporary stage designers
The work is grouped under eight categories, which reflect different approaches to handling time and space in production: Design Process,
Narrative Time, Once Upon a Time, Periods Recreated, Time Transposed, Allusions to Time, Movement in Time, and Space and Colour and
Light in Time and Space.
Work displayed by award winners at the 1999 Prague Quadrennial includes Elizabeth Ascrofts Alices Adventures in Wonderland - a
promenade performance in Williamson Park, Lancaster, which becomes an installation piece; Paul Browns costume designs and model
storyboard from King Arthur shown with actual costumes from The Theatre Museums own collection; and Stefanos Lazaridis model and
storyboard for The Turn of The Screw and Katya Kabanova. Paul Brown is currently designing Verdis Falstaff for the opening production of
The Royal Opera House. Stefanos Lazaridis, together with exhibitor Marie-Jeanne Lecca, is working on The Greek Passion in Bregenz which
opens at The Royal Opera House next March.
Other highlights from TIME AND SPACE illustrate the extraordinary breadth of British design talent ranging from international openings to
small-scale touring, performance art, and installations. This ranges from Jamie Vartans models and storyboard for David Glasss The Hansel
Gretel Machine, a trilogy developed over 3 years to Sophie Jumps Trainstations, a video and costume maquette featuring a group of dancers
who mingle with passengers on London rail concourses and emulate their waiting, greetings and farewells.
