UT Live Design Showcase 2021 presents work created for theatre, dance and other performance mediums by M.F.A. candidates in the UT Live Design program as well as B.A. in Theatre and Dance undergraduate students pursuing an emphasis in design and technology at The University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance. Areas of work include costume design and technology, lighting design, integrated media design and scenic design. Collectively, this work helps tell visual stories for live performance and reflects the collaborative nature of the theatrical process.
This year, the exhibition is being presented online, featuring individual spotlights on each of our designers as we celebrate their work and artistry.
UT Live Design is a master of fine arts degree program that offers graduate students multiple realized opportunities in a program of foundational skills and technique development in Scene Design, Costume Design, Costume Technology, Lighting Design and Integrated Media. We believe that training artists in design for the theatre prepares them for careers as inventors and producers of work in all aspects of live theatrical performance and the related fields of film, television, themed attractions, concerts, events and exhibits – wherever the focus is on the live presence of a human story.
