Between 2005 and 2007, my design company Casson Mann worked on a project in Moscow about Stanislavski. We are museum and exhibition designers and are normally given a list of objects, a storyline and a schedule of learning outcomes and so on, but for the Stanislavski project we had nothing so we embarked upon a remarkable journey of discovery, and, like all good journeys of discovery, it hasn’t yet ended. Craig’s presence accompanied us, as did Stanislavski’s, and we now begin to understand the nature of the overlap between these two time-based experiences: theatre and exhibitions. In my talk I will explore this overlap and the difficulties that arise when one form is asked to explore the other.

Dinah Casson set up her design practice in 1970 and began her partnership with Roger Mann in 1984. Since then, the practice has worked on interior, architecture, product development, theatre and museum projects. Most of their work over the last 15 years has been in the museum sector and includes galleries for the V&A (British Galleries, Portrait Miniatures), the Science Museum (The Garden, Who Am I?, In Future), the Imperial War Museum (Crimes Against Humanity) , Churchill Museum (Cabinet War Rooms) and temporary and travelling exhibitions for the V&A (Art Deco 1910-1939), the Imperial War Museum (Camouflage, For Your Eyes Only) and the Design Council (Great Expectations). They have also designed galleries in Moscow, New York and Italy. Current projects are in Canterbury, London, Philadelphia, New York, and the Middle East. Dinah Casson and Roger Mann were both elected as Royal Designers for Industry in 2006.
