Faculty: Faculty of Engineering
Department:  Interior design and Architecture
Type of the workshop: National workshop
The workshop in brief: We no longer look upon space as a purely physical entity; nor as a container with fixed boundaries; nor as a volume that may be empty, neutral even, or objects, furnished with a purpose, and thus be given functionality and meaning. Instead, we have learned, and maybe always felt, that space is not one, but many. It may be imaginary, or fleeting, and ephemeral. It may be solid, static, and consistent. We know that already by our sheer presence we are active participants within the space that surrounds us, and that we always influence or change the spatial parameters and characteristics of that space. The term “Scenography” includes all of the elements that contribute to establishing an atmosphere and mood for a theatrical presentation: lighting, sound, set, and costume design Scenography is a tool, enabling us to give form and create space for the imagination, not in a given and fixed space but through the shift from real space to imaginary space and back The objective of this workshop is to explain the term Scenography as the integration of “space, text, research, art, actors, directors, and spectators which contribute to an original creation.
