Following a call by Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) in early 2015 for design nominations, designers and companies responded with nominated designs across a diverse range of categories, including: Stage – theatre, opera and dance – costume, hair and make-up, lighting, set, sound and video; Screen – film and television drama – costume, hair, make-up and production design.
The website and publication resulting from these nominations, Stage & Screen Design Ireland Higlights 2007 – 2014, is a celebration of the artistic excellence of 150 Irish designers working across all disciplines in theatre and film in Ireland. The project features the work of internationally recognised designers of both stage and screen including Joan Bergin, Consolata Boyle, Frank Conway, Aedín Cosgrove, Bob Crowley, Eimer Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh, Conor Murphy and Francis O’Connor.
Irish Theatre Institute is delighted to announce that Emmy Award Costume Designer Joan Bergin will launch the new publication and website Stage and Screen Design Ireland - Highlights 2007- 2014 on Tuesday 8 December 2015 at Irish Theatre Institute. To celebrate the launch of the website and publication, Irish Theatre Institute invite you to explore some of the original artworks including models, drawings, costumes, videos and photographs that will animate 17 Eustace Street for two weeks in December from Wednesday 9.
