Megan Adair

Set and Costume Design

Student Information

Bio:

Megan loves exploring different types of theatre and finding interesting and engaging ways of telling a story through the set and costumes.

With an HND in Technical Theatre and an HNC in costume construction, they have skills in and a strong understanding of many different areas of theatre production.

“I chose to study set and costume design because I wanted to deeply explore pieces of writing and create interesting and exciting concepts from this. I wanted the opportunity to create new spaces for performers to inhabit and develop my skills and knowledge in this area. I also wanted to explore the different routes through theatre, film and TV.

I love projects that require a very hands-on approach and have an almost D.I.Y feel to them. The collaborative nature of production is what drew me in so I love projects that involve working closely and collaborating with all departments. I enjoy creating designs that give the performers the ability to interact with the set and costumes and design to “move with the story”

I am interested in designing all kinds of theatre and film. I am especially drawn to devised theatre, as well as children’s and educational theatre.”

I am also very excited by creating work that is accessible to all and I would love to explore, further, the role that design can play in this.”
