[UPDATE] Scenography and Borders: Practice, Place and Politics

updated: 
Tuesday, April 12, 2016 - 7:51am
Theatre and Performance Research Association

The Scenography Working Group invites proposals for our forthcoming meeting at the annual TaPRA conference in Bristol in September 2016. This year's meeting will focus on questions around the importance of place and national identity in scenography, current international politics around borders and migration, and the question of disciplinary borders in relation to scenography.

Thea Brejzek has described scenography as a "transdisciplinary practice of the design of performative space [that] can no longer be assigned to a singular genre…" (2011, 8) and this leads to a discussion of disciplinary border crossings, giving the increasing critical consensus around scenography's interdisciplinarity.
