A History of Stage Design; artists making theatre

A key theme in the history of theatre design through the 20th into the 21st century is the potential for stage space to go beyond decorative and representational functions and create meaning in and of itself. In this talk Joslin McKinney discusses uses of the 'stage' as a responsive, expressive, transformative space with (and without) actors.

Dr Joslin McKinney is Associate Professor in Scenography in the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds, UK. She was a theatre designer for 10 years and she was awarded her PhD in 2008. She is the lead author of 'The Cambridge Introduction to Scenography' published by Cambridge University Press.
