To get some thoughts on what other people thought about a portable set designed for cabarets i constructed a survey and gave 8 people one to fill out on my next visit to Downfield Musical Society.
The question was;
1.Describe using 5 words what the key features for a portable cabaret set design are?
2.What is the first image that comes to mind of what this portable set would look like ?
3.Can you draw it or sketch it ?
Here are the sheets filled out ……
From these sheets the description words were really helpful. Some of the words were; simple, lightweight, adjustable, attractive, re-usable, durable and easily assembled. As you can see from the drawings there is a similar thought on what a portable set would look like. From this research i hope to be able to design something that doesn’t look like a typical stage but still defines the area as a performance space.
