This conference aims to highlight aspects of the role of the set designer within the creation team and to debate on his relationship with the other artists who take part in the creation of stage design, the light and the video.
Keynote Lecture Carmencita Brojboiu│The Set Designer – between a solitary creator and a team worker
Coordinator: Adrian Damian
Curators: Viorica Petrovici and Andrada Chiriac
Coordinator of the Virtual Set Design and Augmented Reality Laboratory: Iuliana Gherghescu
Project Management: Elena Belciu și Alexandra Bucălae
360 shots: Marius Hodea
Initiator: The Virtual Set Design and Augmented Reality Laboratory at the CINETic Research Center of the I. L. Caragiale University of Theatre and Film (UNATC), in partnership with the NTF
The conference will include a series of debates about concepts that are at the base of set design creation and light and video design, but especially methods and ways to transform these ideas in stage realities, be they physical or virtual one.
Because the art of set design moves on the edge between creation and execution, a dialogue between those who draft the future of this field – such an important one in the world of theatre – becomes a highly valuable one particularly nowadays, in these generally insecure times.

From a specialised plastic language to concepts regarding theatre, film, digital art, costume, installation and much more – all these are stages that a student must go through in order to be well prepared for the professional life ahead of them.
All exhibits have been created under the supervision of the Department’s teachers: Anca Albani, Doina Sibicianu, Adrian Lis, Andreea Popa, Roxana Ionescu, Viorica Petrovici and Cristian Niculescu.
