CPP Summertime Festival 2018

The Contemporary Performance Practice course completes a series of performances in the Chandler Studio Theatre between the 14th May and the 15th June. The performances are devised by groups from each of the four year groups on the CPP course. The first line of shows were created by the CPP year 3 students - more details can be found on the CPP3 Collobrations 2018 page. The next performances was a choreographed piece created by the second year CPP course - information can be found below. The last group of shows are a collaboration between the final year students and the first year group.

The TSM Manual was created as a more useful substitute for the generic production manual. The CPP performances needed a different method of planning that was not easy with the common production manual document. **This document is not complete yet as the shows are still in progress**

The Ground Plans for all of the CPP theatre configurations were designed in the one Vectorworks project file with multiple design layers and multiple classes for each show.

The first performance required three movable statue plinths which were designed on Vectorworks and built by the TSM:

The Projector used for the festival was borrowed from Edinburgh college as it had an ultra short throw lens which meant that we were able to project a screen size the full height of the wall and only be cut off by performers about 1 meter away from the wall. A Black Magic Ultra Studio Recorder was required to input the live camera feed into Qlab. Here is a look at the kit.
