Teatervitenskapen og det romlige


  • Sidsel Graffer


Performativ scenografi forstått som romlig iscenesettelse utøvd innenfor teaterinstitusjoner og teaterarkitektur utfordrer teatervitenskapen til å inkludere perspektiver fra performance studies, og til å inngå i interdisiplinære samarbeid hvor den situerer seg tett på, men likevel i kritisk distanse til scenekunstpraksis. Bare slik kan den adressere en komplisert og presserende problemstilling som autonomikonvensjonen i scenografi og teaterarkitektur.

Performative scenography understood as spatial staging conducted within theatre institutions and theatre architecture challenges Theatre Studies to include perspectives from Performance Studies, to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration, and to situate itself close, yet within a critical distance to performing arts practice. From this position, Theatre Studies may fruitfully address complex questions such as the convention of autonomy in today’s scenography and theatre architecture.
