Design for Performance & Interaction MArch

Programme Director: Ruairi Glynn 20

What happens when we design not in three dimensions but four? This radical course teaches students to understand and design performances and interactive experiences.

Structured to offer the widest scope for creativity, the course facilitates and empowers students to find their own unique design vision, emphasising prototyping, from interactive objects to staged events and performance architecture.
