Yei – Sheng Wang is a designer from Taiwan who will be exhibiting his work at World Stage Design 2013 -


The exhibition will explore the diversity of capturing design, and along with traditional displays exhibitors will be able to propose innovative presentation techniques. WSD 2013 will question the boundaries of performance design and the designers’ work in both traditional and non-traditional performance spaces.

World Stage Design takes place every four years. The first was held in Toronto and the 2009 host city was Seoul. Cardiff won the right to be the event’s 2013 host against competition from several other cities, including Beijing. Its success makes it the first European/UK WSD host. Alongside the programme of specialist and public events, WSD also makes bronze, silver and gold awards to the best entries to its design competitions. This year, one of the competitions is to design a temporary theatre space using sustainable materials with the winning design being built in the courtyard of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s Anthony Hopkins Centre for use during the festival.
