About the exhibition:
The exhibition title, Make/Believe, indicates the vision, skills and commitment found in the diversity of performance design today. It featured work that defines the edges of this artform-in-industry – in music festivals, large scale events such as the Olympics, Paralympics, community opera, found space and promenade performance, in digital, landscape, heritage and media contexts, as well as the intimate and highly valued work that designers are currently doing in education, health and various community settings.

The exhibition celebrated the high quality of designs for a variety of theatre spaces, the traditions of pantomime design, the ravishing visuals that transform many children’s books into stage spectaculars as well as the dance and opera designs by UK designers that are notable around the world. Make/Believe also acknowledged and promoted the development of new performance spaces, the re-envisioning of old and existing buildings and the increasing commitment to sustainable design and practices in both production and performance environments.
