Head of Stage Management
Ian Evans is the Head of Stage Management at RWCMD. He has further developed his career as a professional in the theatre and the entertainment and event industry, which has greatly enhanced his skills as an educator.
He has been involved with numerous educational projects for OISTAT, including: co-Producer and Technical Director of WSD/Scenofest 2013 and co-Producer and Technical Director for Scenofest 2007, Project Leader for OISTAT Changing Perspectives at the Prague Quadrennial (PQ) 2015; co-organiser of the Beijing International Biennale. Ian has created soundscapes for the installation ‘No Man’s Land’ PQ15, and the Brazilian Exhibition PQ19.
In 2016, Ian produced a sonic installation of his own composition called ‘Whispers’ at the Desenhos de Cena #1 in São Paulo, Brazil. His innovative use of transducers for this installation, driven by his experiments that had shown how to turn any resonant material into a loudspeaker, led to his making further developments in their implementation which allow directors, set designers, costume designers and others to introduce audio into their work. Evans was invited by World Stage Design 2017 to develop the ideas first explored in ‘Whispers’ into a three-day workshop on the use of transducers at the Taipei National University of the Arts.
Ian was the Technical Production Manager and co-Lighting Designer for the Society of British Theatre Designers’ exhibition Staging Places at the Prague Quadrennial 2019 and the Victoria and Albert Museum London.
