Ros Maddison, Head of Production
Welcome to the Production Showcase 2022 where you will see the extraordinary talent of this year’s graduates from the BA Production Arts and Design and the BA Production Technology and Management programmes at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. It has been another year of extraordinary challenges for these students, having now had all three years of their student journey impacted by the restrictions of the Covid pandemic, and I want to pay testament to their committed, creative approach over this time. They have continually created work that stands shoulder to shoulder with previous years despite the fact that, at times, this has been produced in very different circumstances. We have been fortunate to keep producing live performances in the Royal Conservatoire’s venues all year again and, whether at distance, blended or in situations they have simply never experienced before, these emerging production practitioners have shown a professional commitment beyond all expectation.
I must also acknowledge here the RCS Production staff whose inexhaustible energy, dedication and good humour over the past three years has made all of this possible. Finally, I would like to thank all of the amazing graduates, freelancers and friends of the department who have worked with us, taking time to share their invaluable knowledge and experience with all of our students.
Please look through these pages and enjoy the work of the Class of 2022!
