How does a designer harness something as elusive as the human imagination to create a set that will complement and enhance a dramatic production? What steps are involved in making the jump from a script's text to an engaging imaginative stage?
In From Page to Stage, author Rosemary Ingham explores the relationships between text analysis, imagination, and creation. Heavily illustrated with striking examples, the book covers:
Explores the relationships among text analysis, imagination, and creation. Offers practical advice for reading and understanding playscripts and a clear, detailed method for identifying, collecting, and organizing script facts in order to move from text to theatrical event. Includes b&w illustrations as well as photo/interview essays in which designers address the question of how an interpretation will affect an audience emotionally, spiritually, and politically.
