Platform-Scenography

Platform-Scenography (P-S) is an analogue and digital network with the goal to make scenography as an independent design discipline visible. P-S offers a platform where scenographers from different disciplines, in and outside of theatre, can meet each other to exchange and share their expertise and thinking.

Via encounters, interdisciplinary crossings and confrontations, P-S stimulates the search for a common language. With the help of this language the actual scenographic practice can be named, discussed and analysed in a more adequate way then it is currently the case. The temporarily of the performance, the fleetingness of the medium needs the language to persist.

Through the exchange of scenographers and dramaturges the deepening of the reflection on scenography is possible. The dramaturgical gaze can contribute to scenography and the scenographic thinking can enrich the dramaturgical practice.

To intensify the reflection on scenography, P-S consciously leaves the field of theatre and engages with other, to scenography related, disciplines such as (landscape)architecture, public space design, fashion, graphic design and art. P-S believes that these disciplines can learn from each other and wants to support and facilitate the exchange between them. In our opinion does the scenographic thinking transcend over discipline borders, in it’s working and thinking with time-based scenario’s, developments and processes.
