This volume was first published by Inter-Disciplinary Press in 2016.
Theatre and the many varied expressions of performance practice in live and mediated performance forms, are by their nature inter-disciplinary. The goal of this volume is to develop discussion with a focus on the visual aspects of performance brought up by artists and researchers in various performance disciplines and practices. The volume facilitates inter-personal communication and the exchange of global perspectives, to engage a community in meaningful dialogue. Scenography describes the discipline of performing arts, which include all elements of theatrical presentation. As a definition here it is useful for this volume, because it outlines the understanding of scenographic practice as a combination of numerous theatre-practices that collaborate and include: architecture, lighting, costume, make-up, sound, settings and stage properties, movement, as well as audience participation.
Helene Gee Markstein received in 2015 her PhD from Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia. Her doctoral thesis was on generating stimulus from scenography and proposed 'De-sign' as a tool for choreographic invention. Helene now lives in Gozo, Malta, where she practices as an artist and researcher of varying disciplines.
