Space as Dramaturgy. Colloquium on Scenography
The staging of the space made its mark in theatre and helped to shape Regietheater. Scenography – stage and costume design, but also lighting, painting, sculpture and large-scale installations – is an autonomous art form, which can only be realized in collaboration with text, directing and acting.
Following an introduction from a theatre studies perspective, artists from all areas of theatre production will speak on related subjects: how the room at play influences the aesthetics of the theatre today; artistic constellations and team building; production relationships in theatre; and the invitation of theatre to the visual arts. This with a special view to France, from where strong impulses – whose origins could already be felt in Paris during the interwar period – reached a significant impact on European theatre since 1968, through artists such as Gilles Aillaud, Eduardo Arroyo, Richard Peduzzi, and others.
