Bourla Donations

Online registration is now closed for the Wood and Canvas conference. More information about registering at the conference can be found here.

in Antwerp in June of 2014.  The theme of the conference is to suggest ideas and methodologies so that old wooden stage machinery can be put to use in modern theatre productions.  Rather than seeing this equipment as obsolete and falling completely out of use, we believe that ways can be found to revive these extremely flexible systems.   All that we are lacking is creative ideas.  Hence this conference.

Wood and Canvas will be both Academic and Practical; each day will include presentations of papers regarding old stage machinery as well as hands-on experience using wooden stage machinery.
