American Design and Chinese Theatres

Eldon Elder, Fulbright Distinguished Lecturer,

Central Academy of Drama;

School of Architecture, Qinghua University

Australian Embassy

BIS is most fortunate to seize the presence of Mr. Eldon Elder while he is in Beijing as a Fulbright Distinguished Lecturer at the Central Academy of Drama and Qinhua University's School of Architecture. A well-known stage designer and theatre consultant with his own company is New York, drawing from Broadway, off-Broadway, regional theatre, and opera, with examples of traditional and avant-garde styles. Because he is here to share ideas and expertise with Chinese designers; Mr. Elder's talk will focus on American theatre, but he will welcome questions on Chinese trends.
