Northern Stage Anniversary Exhibition (working title)

Dates: 10.12.10 - 13.1.10 Curated by Keith McIntyre, this exhibition celebrates the 40th anniversary of the building of Northern Stage Theatre. The Northern Stage company has a reputation for applying a strong visual aesthetic to their productions, an approach that has been driven by the Associate Director and Head of Design, Neil Murray. The Anniversary Exhibition involves relocating Murray's entire studio space from Northern Stage's Byker workshops to Gallery North in order to provide valuable insights into how preparatory drawings, stage props, costumes and scaled models are employed in the visual development of a Northern stage production.Murray trained in Fine Art at Northumbria University (then Newcastle Polytechnic) before moving into theatre design and is now one of the UK's most visionary artists working for the stage (winner of the Best Design award at the 2008 Evening Standard's Theatre Awards).
