Set Design

Talent is on stage.

The theatre is associated with costume scenography as a way of creating places and worlds, moments of time, illusory realities; developing a sense of perception and beauty where space and time are put in movement, making it possible to create new projects, stories, and emotions. Set Design is a magic art that enables all forms of theatrical representation to be created by expertly mixing architecture and history, arts and technologies; as a profession there is nothing else quite like it. Using the theoretical and empirical training received at RUFA about how to use lighting, materials, fundamentals of architecture, photography, video projections and reconstructions, the Set Designer with a BA degree in Set Design at Rufa enters the world of work as a many-sided professional whose areas of knowledge range from construction to design, and finds its natural outlet in the entertainment world (theatre, cinema, television, events). But the set designer r can also become an art director in many other areas designing costumes, scenes, lighting for fashion shows, exhibitions, and open-air installations. Using aesthetic taste and knowledge of advanced techniques, the set designer is the person who establishes the basic principles for the dynamic design of any theatrical event.
Academy Degrees are equivalent to Bachelor’s university degrees.
