About the Book
The most bewildering paradox of scenography is its potential to create a space of mesmerizing beauty. Beautiful stage designs raise gasps of amazement among the audience. However, the exclamation ‘very beautiful scenery’ is well reminiscent of the adjective ‘nice’ paintings (or symphonies). Equally you might find decors which are, simply put, ugly. But does a successful set design have to be ‘beautiful’? What makes a good set in theatre? What makes a good set designer?
