Stage and Costume Design at the Berlin Weissensee School of Art is a Fine Arts course. Students spend their first year of study learning the foundations of art and design in an interdisciplinary course together with students from all faculties of the School. Building upon that foundation, this course examines, teaches and experiments with the possibilities of stage and costume design, both in the historical context and in contemporary theatre. Students learn to develop strategies and perspectives for visualisation in the performing arts which go beyond the purely theatrical.
The course focuses on developing artistic concepts. The School is particularly able to follow this approach because it provides:
- an unbiased debate between concept development and theory, between stage and costume;
- an interdisciplinary spectrum from fine art to design.
Students on this course will find themselves working in the space where theatre, costume, dramaturgy and direction converge; new media and costume are important focuses. This course aims to produce stage and costume designers who work as independent artists and equal partners in the process of staging a theatrical work. Graduates will possess the ability to represent ideas and concepts appropriately, to communicate them, to use technology to realise their ideas and bring them to bear.
Applicants for the course Fine Arts / Stage and Costume Design must demonstrate a particular artistic aptitude and a distinct interest in working in the theatre. Experience gained in previous professional training or internships at theatres is advantageous. A general qualification for university entrance is preferred. Artistic aptitude will be tested in an examination.
Students on the course Stage and Costume Design graduate after ten semesters (five years).
