Designers who instigate and develop their own work in which performance design is the lead component and/or lead their own companies and collectives are an integral part of SBTD’s membership. This group seeks to support those building their own projects via residencies, funding applications, festivals etc. and to advocate for the role of the designer in cultural leadership.

Areas we explore:

Producing and funding. 

Designers as cultural leaders and instigators. 

Collaborative and ensemble practices.
Co-creation and community performance. 

Digital, fine art and installation contexts. 

New Dramaturgies. 

Site-based and immersive experience. 

Personal identity and design. 

We are interested in the intersection of design and wider performance including and not limited to; virtual reality, sound, spatial, object, and materials. Our aim as a group is to foster productive debate about the challenges of design-led performance. Celebrate the role of designers as instigators of performance and question the social, applied and political contents for design.
