Ruth Stringer, freelance designer and scenic artist, visited the Greenwich & Docklands International Festival and Xtrax Showcase, along with a team of Wales based artists, arts organisations and arts programmers hosted by Articulture. Below is a detailed account of her experience.
Ruth works in theatre, dance and opera, and trained in theatre design at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, obtaining a post-graduate diploma in 2010 and a MA in 2014. Since graduating, she has worked with companies including National Theatre Wales, The Royal Court Theatre, WIldworks and Soho Theatre. You can find out more about her work at www.ruthstringer.com.
Last weekend the sun decided to join me in the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival (GDIF) – three days crammed full of talks, networking, circus, dance and immersive theatre events, happening around Greenwich, home of the Cutty Sark, Greenwich Market and a truly amazing gelato shop (more about gelato later, if that’s your thing).
