Theatre Design & Technology - Spring 2021 - 4

FROM THE EDITOR

W

elcome to the Spring 2021 issue of TD&T!
We begin this issue with a celebration
of the work of Japanese designer Mitsuru
Ishii. Author Yoshi Tanokura takes us through Ishii's
career, tracing the fusion of cultural traditions and
aesthetics which permeate his designs. Rick Boychuk
provides an analysis of what might be the perfect
rigging system-a possible unicorn, he posits, which
had the good fortune of being comprehensively
designed and meticulously maintained.
As we pass the one-year mark of pandemic
shutdowns, our authors are able to share more
strategies for adapting to new production models,
continuing the ongoing conversations we have been
having on our pages and in virtual conference rooms.
Kieran Hood shares the story of an intentionally
planned remote production performed by Stanford
University in fall 2020, offering key observations about
successes and challenges, as well as providing vital
insight into the student perspective on how these

shows fit into academic workloads and experiences.
Brant Murray takes a more macro-level approach,
detailing the fall semester programming at Krannert
Center for the Performing Arts at the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Here, we see the
systemic changes enacted across an entire curriculum
and facility, including a breadth of programming
styles to meet the needs of their patrons, faculty, and
students.
This issue sees the conclusion of our multi-year
Modern Theatres collaboration with Bühnentechnische
Rundschau (BTR) and Sightline (UK) through an
interview with project leader David Staples. Karin
Winkelsesser of BTR sits down with Staples to talk
about the lessons learned through this project, his
career, and developments in theatrical architecture
since 1950.
