Sean Crowley is winner of the Arts & Culture award sponsored by Orchard Media & Events Group
Sean, who currently works as director of drama at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, has been Wales’ most prolific theatre designer over the past 11 years.
As project director of World Stage Design 2013, he has led planning and design for the event, which will be hosted at the college in September and is expected to attract more than 1,000 theatre designers from across the world, as well as 5,000 spectators.
“I think the unique environment here at the Royal Welsh College is one of our strongest attributes. We are a small, efficient conservatoire offering superb education in a number of different but complementary subjects. My colleagues in Stage Management, Acting and Music all work with some of the most promising students in their particular fields. As a department, I’m pleased to say that we work closely with the other courses, and by working together we have produced some fantastic performances. I think it’s fair to say that RWCMD has successfully built a reputation for producing both traditional and dynamic, alternative performances.
Graduates of the programme have gone on to work across the theatre, television and film industries. You will find them in leading roles at the Royal Opera House, Welsh National Opera, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare as well as on sets of BBC Wales’ Doctor Who and the forthcoming production of Da Vinci’s Demons.”
