The National Theatre have been running on Instagram a very interesting weekly series of discussions about the design process and the experience of designing for the National Theatre, and giving audiences the chance to ask their own questions.
Each week a different designer talked about one of their show designs, and each week they featured a different design specialism including costume, set, lighting, puppetry, graphics and sound.
Although the NT’s Instagram Live Design Series has now finished, you can browse the archive for talks on the following:
Vicki Mortimer and Sarah Mercer on Follies Costume Designs
Jessica Hung Han Yun and Jack Williams on the Dick Whittington Lighting Design
Katrina Lindsay and Tariq Rifaat on the Small Island Set Design
