15 to 19 July 2019


Following the success of the first European Stage Management Symposium at Rose Bruford College in 2017, join us again for a week of learning examining European and British stage management practices. This week will provide a place to network and meet old and new friends and colleagues from around Europe as well as share and learn new skills and increase your understanding of the craft of stage managing.

With both beginner and advanced sessions delivered by UK based professionals and Rose Bruford College faculty we will explore a number of themes. Our programme will include:

  • The art and function of stage management in the UK and Europe; universality within production practice;
  • The language of stage management; distributed cognition, semiotics and phenomenology;
  • An introduction to sound, sound design and operations for theatre;
  • Training your colleagues – passing on your skills and mentoring new team members;
  • The stage manager as manager; relations and relationships;
  • In the rehearsal room – working with directors, creative teams and performers;
  • Stage management away from the stage – promenade performance, immersive theatre and other events.

The week will also feature round table discussions and debates, exclusive backstage visits and tours of iconic London shows and venues, and tickets to a theatre production.
