Spaces Consider Space Spaces of performance Drama consists essentially of the interaction between performers and spectators in a given space. The term space is used here in a range of ways: the physical space of the interaction between the performance and the audience; the social, cultural and economic space of the audience members; the physical space of the stage, its organisation and scenographic design; the physical reality of ‘off stage’ space; and the fictional or emotional space that is created or evoked within, or in relation to the physical spaces of drama. The use of proscenium, thrust, in-the-round, traverse and promenade spaces of performance is considered. Various forms and styles of drama shape their performance spaces in individual and communal ways and call for audiences to respond in particular ways. A dynamic relationship is created between the performers and the audience as spectators and participants in performances.

Design Team Members Here are the design team members : Sound designer - responsible for what will be heard, be it abstract, practical, recorded, digital, what ever the script calls for and the director's vision of how the environment sounds. Lighting designer - responsible for the selective visible components, adding to the depth and dimension of the script and psychologically working with the directors vision to convey to the audience what is seen to fulfill the director's visual mood. The lighting designer will reinforce the theme of the script. Costume designer - responsible for the clothing, down to its detail, texture, color, shape and overall piece, be it period, contemporary, gothic, roman, greek or shakespearean. Set/Scenic Designer- responsible for the ground plan, layout and shaping of the environment, creates the atmosphere and the main performance space. The ground plan combines, height, width, length, color, texture, surfaces all depending on what is being called for in the script to fulfill the director's vision. Prop Designer - is responsible to create, produce, located, or build props that is necessary for a script. This time period, size, color, dimension, realism, and texture are some of the main things to think about when a prop is needed. The director can give the prop master all the dynamics of what they envision the prop looking and feeling like and how the character may use it, if so. Photos are taken and kept as to show the director and designer for approval or changes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
