about this item

Focused on the contemporary Anglophone adoption from the 1960s onwards, Beyond Scenography explores the porous state of modern theatre-making to argue a critical distinction between scenography (as place orientation) and scenographics (that which orientate acts of worlding, of staging). With sections on installation art and gardening as well as protest and placemaking, this book is an argument for what scenography does: how assemblages of scenographic traits orientate, situate, and shape staged events. It revisits the symbiosis of stage and scene to challenge the assumed determinism that stages precede scenography. One of the conclusions of this book is that there is no theatre practice without scenography, no stages without scenographics. Beyond Scenography offers a manifesto for a renewed theory of scenographic practice.
