Description

Our understanding of scenography has, over the course of the twentieth century, changed radically from stage design as decoration, depicting a location of a (written) play, to the scenic/spatial construction (or intervention) of the place and site of performance – scenography as a dynamic element in the creation of performance dramaturgy.
