Skēnographia is a series of free online creative lectures, workshops and talks to showcase and engage with the broad and diverse range of voices and disciplines in the scenographic world. These will take place on a monthly basis, alternating creative workshops, lectures and practical talks.

This project marks a milestone in the growth of scenography education in Ireland, aiming to facilitate discussion, exploration and innovation as well as defining standards for visual rigour and best practices, along with the current necessities of design for performance.

It also aims to give voice to the often neglected behind-the-scenes sphere, from costume-makers to stage crew, making visible key information, new technologies and developments that are fundamental to the growth of scenography as an art form in Ireland.

These online masterclasses are announced on a monthly basis. Please, see details below of the next upcoming masterclass.

Design-Led Theatre: Experimental Scenography
Tuesday 14th Dec
Time:  11am – 1pm

Whether you have been working for 5 or 50 years the beginning of a project is always the same – the empty model box, a blank page.
We will discuss beginnings and inspirations in attempting to make innovative scenography – looking back at our own work and future new beginnings. 
We will respond to the concept of design-led theatre; what might that be, or does such a practice even exist? 
Reflecting on their own practices with Pan Pan and MALAPROP as a starting point, Aedín and Molly look forward to facilitating a conversation with participants.
