Space is one of the elements available to be manipulated by the designer in the development of a design for performance. Space can be expanded and compressed, altered and changed through the use of scenic elements and devices - the set. This subject examines how through the application of scenic devices and mechanisms, space can be used as a dramaturgical tool in the creation of a performance. Students will also study different performance spaces from different periods – their physical structure, and the theories underlying them. Non-traditional spaces will also be examined – the found performance space, and the site specific performance space.
