Highlights of the Production Arts (Theatre Technology) Pathway
Scale-model theatre experience
Our Production Arts students are taught by Joseph Mercurio, who has taught and designed undergraduate study in Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) at Edith Cowan University and Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) at the University of Melbourne. He has built a fantastic learning experience for IBCP students here at WISS using a 1:25 scale-model theatre. The scale-model is in the IBCP Production Arts studio and includes a scaled-downed version of theatrical equipment including lighting, audio and visual.
The program works on an industry simulation model where students engage in the practical application of technical theatre skills on various projects throughout the WISS campus.
IBCP Production Arts students are involved in the production of multiple WISS theatrical shows throughout the year. They do everything from light design, set design, set maintenance, and sound design. They gain experience as a crew member, control operator, and designer.
