Space plays a central role in a performance. The relationship between spectators and performers is already the first important setting. The use of the manifold possibilities and combination of material (stage constructions, props) and immaterial (light, projections, fog) is another artistic setting. Visual and performing arts are combined. Practical exercises are used to teach the creation of a space for a text, theme or performance. Model building as a central working tool of the creative design process and communication will be introduced. Aspects of teamwork with scenographers will be explained and discussed. The special situation of independent productions, their specific requirements and individual questions will be addressed.
