2D > 3D: Design for Theatre and Performance

by Kate Burnett (author), Peter Ruthven Hall (author)

2D>3D reveals the design secrets of many magical shows, from international musicals to innovative fringe events and award-winning productions. This fascinating book considers how the two dimensional sketch comes to life in three dimensional reality. It reveals the seldom seen tools of performance design such as stage models, costume designs, storyboards, computer visualisations and includes fabulous costumes and masks as well as stunning photographs of the realised productions. Published originally to accompany a major national exhibition, it illustrates 290 theatre productions, the work of 287 practising stage and theatre designers and includes 136 biographies. 2D>3D is accessible to general and specialised readers.
