IFTR Scenography Working Group Symposium Interim Event

Friday 14th June – Saturday 15th June 2019

Hosted by the Department of Theatre Studies, Faculty of Arts, Charles University Prague, Czech Republic

The Scenography Working Group is convening a two-day symposium for members to share their research in the context of the largest event in the scenographic calendar, the Prague Quadrennial. We are inviting proposals that relate to the artistic vision of PQ’19 - the cyclical phases of the creative process: Imagination (“youth’s wild instinct and intuition”), Transformation (“the experience of adulthood”), Memory (“the wisdom of age”). We are looking for proposals for 15 minute presentations linked to these themes. Timed to coincide with PQ’19, the symposium is kindly hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy at Charles University. There will be no charge to attend the symposium, but you must be a member of IFTR at the time of the symposium (see www.cambridge.org/core/membership/iftr for details). The only additional costs to participants will be related to travel, accommodation and subsistence.

Proposals should be a maximum of 300 words and clearly identified in relation to one of the three areas: scenography and imagination scenography and transformation scenography and memory

Proposals should be sent to both co-convenors of the SWG, Nick Hunt and Sofia Pantouvaki: nick.hunt@bruford.ac.uk and sofsceno@gmail.com

Deadline for proposals: 29th March 2019

Acceptances confirmed by 15th April 2019

The Scenography Working Group will also be meeting at the IFTR 2019 Conference at the Shanghai Theatre Academy, Shanghai, China, 8th – 12th July 2015. www.iftr.org/conference
