Set Design by Gary English


Today scenic design is taught and classified into two types… Box Sets & Unit Sets.

I would like to propose additional scenic design classifications (which can be viewed above and are listed below).  Each week I will focus on a different classification.  Some of these can be combined and could be debated that some of these “classifications” are the same but, by redefining the terms we use designers, artists and theater practitioners we can further understand what scenic design is, can be and will be as theater progresses further.  

Got a question, comment, thought?  Hate it?  Love it?  Think I’m a fool? Got something to contribute?  I want to hear from you!  Let’s get a discussion going!
