Scenography is becoming a universally used term in professional theatre practice and education, but what exactly is it? This volume is a very personal and direct response to this question by one of the world's leading scenographers. The result is a provocative re-evaluation of the traditional role and methods of theatre designers, pointing towards a more holistic approach to making theatre. Pamela Howard examines scenography from many different perspectives including: Space Text Research Colour and Composition Performers Spectators. Part polemic and part critical analysis, the text is enriched with anecdotes and case studies taken from Howard's career and extensive research into the subject. Illustrated with brilliant examples of Pamela Howard's own work, this book is a must for all visual theatremakers.


'Pamela Howard's ground-breaking What is Scenography? was the first book to set out the bold new approaches to designing and directing for theatre which had dazzled audiences in Europe during the previous decades. It did us all a service by enriching the scope of how we understand the aesthetics of the stage... The lavish new materials (drawings, colour photos, new production analysis) included in this second edition make it even more essential for anyone interested in new developments in theatre.' - David Bradby 'To write, design, organize, manage, sculpt, educate, paint, research and above all, to passionately live the life of the performance is what Pamela has done throughout her whole career and, in one way or another, it is reflected here in this book: the universality of stage design, its elements and its soul.' - Ramon Ivars 'Gives an excellent sense of scenography and a window on a life in the theatre - which is fascinating. ...A superb book.' - Professor Arnold Aronson, Columbia University, USA 'Pamela Howard is the precise definition of what a scenographer of today should be: a multiple artist... Her vast experience with space, her rare and acute power of reflection, her workshops worldwide, her masterful control of drawing and painting and her ability to interconnect scenography with other artistic expressions qualify her to discuss with great authority what space for staging should be in the coming decades of this millennium.' - Jose Carlos Serroni 'Comprehensive and accessible, this ambitious guide includes a walk-in-wardrobe-full of insights and personal accounts... There are some informative and creative insights on the metaphoric meaning of furniture... and Howard takes a wonderfully integrative approach to scripts, looking at the physical shape of words. The book's production is similarly innovative... This is a rigorous and significant contribution. Invaluable for practitioners, students and the serious enthusiast.' -
