Celebrating the Art of Collaborative Stage Design

29 & 30 March 2024 at Project Arts Centre

The Irish Society of Performance Designers is delighted to present its very first festival on scenography. 

Join us this Easter for a stimulating and thought-provoking celebration of the art of collaborative stage design.

The festival line-up includes panels, workshops, PechaKucha presentations, networking events, a student forum, and a final performance with sound, lighting and AV designers, also showcasing costume.

Scenofest is conceived to celebrate and bring together the community of designers and of the performing arts at large, to foster and deepen dialogues, and to showcase the broad and diverse range of voices and disciplines in stage design. 

Highlights of the programme include a panel on collaborative design with Aedín Cosgrove, Esosa Ighodaro and Tom Lane, chaired by John Comiskey; workshops with Wayne Jordan on Collaborative Writing, and Niall Laverty on Gesture Drawing; PechaKucha presentations including The Pit Collective: Peter Daly, Noelle Brown, Esosa Ighodaro, Dee Roycroft and Catherine Fay, and a final performance curated by Peter Power.
