Welcome to E-scenography!

E-scenography is an online system created by the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space within the Intersection project that aims to create an informational community to discuss issues connected to scenography, including all performance design disciplines, theatre architecture, and space.

Scenography / performance design is a rapidly developing discipline existing in between visual arts, performing arts, and design, and is usually taught at theatre, visual art, architecture, and applied arts schools. Serious theoretical discourse connected to performance design has been developing only in the recent decades. E-scenography aims to foster this discourse connected to the theoretical, practical, historical, aesthetic, social, and philosophical issues of performance design and space in a multitude of scenographic disciplines. E-scenography also aims to become an informational system to share news about scenography events, projects, and education to the international community.

E-scenography´s content is created by you, the scenographers: stage, costume, sound, and lighting designers, teachers, curators, and theorists. Please join in!
