20th Century

20th Century

Early 20th century:

In the 1920s Bertolt Brecht was a german theatre director who believed in a very bare stage so that the ‘truth’ of the acting was clear and not cluttered by elaborate scenery.
This helped designers to develop new ideas.

20th Century and today:

Artists and Designers like Pablo Picasso and David Hockney have developed theatre set design even further, creating exciting and innovative designs.
Some of the big budget productions of contemporary mainstream theatre are very technically complex and elaborate, eg. John Napier’s designs for the West End theatres.
