Theatre Performance and Technology: The Development of Scenography in the Twentieth Century (Hardcover)
Technology has always been an important part of theater, both as a means to an end and as end in itself. Throughout the twentieth century a unifying attitude in all art forms is the desire to examine the materials and the tools of making art. In the theatre this approach significantly expands the relationships between technology, scenography and performance. This book explores ways in which development and change in technology have been reflected in scenography, and considers how change in scenographic identity has impacted upon the place and meaning of performance.
