Stage & Screen Design Ireland has been developed by Irish Theatre Institute in collaboration with Year of Irish Design 2015, Irish Film Board and Culture Ireland. The site is a showcase of designers originally from and/or working in Ireland, and features productions highlighted by the designers themselves and the companies they worked with between 2007-2014.
Rather than a full listing of productions, the aim is to give a sense of each designer’s unique style and method, and a flavour of the work that goes on behind the scenes. Featuring original drawings, models, production images, sound clips and videos, the site presents an exceptional portfolio of best designs for stage and screen coming from Ireland.
The website will also feature buildings designed to house performance and cinematic art including theatres, opera houses, art centres and cinemas built in Ireland within the project’s timeframe.
