2017世界劇場展邀請到Scenofest的發起人Pamela Howard 策畫Keynote speech系列講座，Pamela以「打破界線」為題，邀請了一輩子從事劇場設計的大師Ralph Koltai, Susan Tsu, Jean-Guy Lecat參與，以詰問方式分享他們的設計生涯。
Breaking the Boundaries
The term ' interdisciplinary work ' is no longer enough to refer to the tasks of a scenographer today. Pamela Howard takes herself, Susan and Jean-Guy for examples, when they are totally collaborative at work, they also set up their own collaborative teams.A textile artist might be creating a piece of furniture, and a furniture maker could contribute to a visual installation. A costume designer could be a scenographer, as the actors wearing their costume on stage becomes scenography. It’s never too late to break a boundary.Art needs no walls or passports!
PROFESSOR SUSAN TSU( USA )
As a Chinese American who came of age in the late 1960’s, she personally experienced both tensions and fascinations between East and West in the USA. All the while, wondering what artists and theatre makers were doing to keep their spirits afloat during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) in China. She resolved then, to do what she could to bring creative people together from around the world to share, without prejudice, their views about human experience. Through her innovative classes, conferences, exchanges, and international exhibitions such as the Prague Quadrennial and World Stage Design, Costume at the Turn of the Century: 1990-2015 and Innovative Costume of the 21stCentury: The Next Generation, she breaks boundaries as a designer, curator and teacher!
