Taking centre stage in Beijing

The largest ever exhibition of European theatre design opens in China this week, curated by Wimbledon College of Arts, UAL. Hosted by the National Centre for Performing Arts, highlights of the exhibition include the designs for the Lion King stage play and Cheek By Jowl productions.

Coinciding with Beijing Design Week and the China-UK Year of Cultural Exchange, the exhibition will put a spotlight on the design process from initial idea to final production and will cover the full range of design for theatre and performance. The curators have described the exhibition as a “garden of ideas” that also illuminates for a Chinese audience the differences and nuances of design approaches across Europe, with drawings, process work, scale models and costumes, as well as moving image on display.

Curated by Wimbledon’s MA Theatre Design course director Michael Pavelka and Theatre Design Senior Lecturer Peter Farley, the exhibition features work from the Lion King by Wimbledon alumnus Richard Hudson, Cheek By Jowl by Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnelan, Ping by LCF alumna Daphne Karstens, alongside designs by Thomas Rupert and Dimitry Krymov.
