This day-long performance research seminar brings together a range of scholars and arts practitioners from the intersecting fields of theatre, performance, design and visual arts. Scenographic Things / Scenography Objects focuses on two connected, topical issues within the field: scenography's materiality and status as a craft; and its potential to 'object' – to challenge tradition through its material and visual aesthetics – as part of theatre, performance or political activism.

Silence itself—the things one declines to say, or is forbidden to name, the discretion that is required between different speakers—is less the absolute limit of discourse, the other side from which it is separated by a strict boundary, than an element that functions alongside the things said, with them and in relation to them within over-all strategies. [...]There is not one but many silences, and they are an integral part of the strategies that underlie and permeate discourses. (Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality Vol. 1: An Introduction )
