Society of British Theatre Designers (SBTD) in collaboration with the V&A Museum and Nottingham Trent University.
Make/Believe brings together an extraordinary range of contemporary designers and artists in performance to show a collection of new work – all made in the last four years. Revealing the ideas and processes behind visually arresting performance made by UK designers here and internationally.
The exhibition will feature work that defines the edges of this art form; in industry and music festivals, large scale events such as the Olympics, Paralympics, community opera, found space and promenade performance, in digital, heritage and media contexts. It will also give praise to the intimate and highly valued work that designers are currently doing in education, health and various community settings.
Make/Believe at NTU is the first stop in a touring exhibition, selected work will subsequently be shown at the Prague Quadrennial in June 2015, at the V&A for nine months from July 2015 and at festivals and venues throughout the UK from March 2016.
