OISTAT Scenography Commission Meeting Events
The OISTAT World Congress is tentatively scheduled on 18 September 2009 prior to World Stage Design 2009 (19-30 September 2009).
Entries may be of a maximum of 10 images, submitted digitally. One or more productions may be included within this limit. Discussion suggested that unrealized projects should not be included; i.e. all designs need to have been presented in performance in front of a live audience. Work by students would only be eligible under this condition.
The exhibition will include entries for set, costume, lighting and sound design. Heads of Working Groups may comment on the best format for submissions. Working Groups therefore need to consult before offering guidance to the organizer.
The proposals for PQ 2011 were introduced. The new title will be International Exhibition of Performance Design and Space. The current thinking is that a new title such as ‘Performing Arts and Space’ will enable architecture and scenography to merge more easily..
There will be space for ‘New Countries’ to be represented through a display of the work of individual representatives through expositions of individual countries, live lectures and presentations, and also in the pavilions organized for individual continents or regions by Theatre Institute.
Comments are welcome from everyone but PQ organizers have requested that these should be channeled through OISTAT Governing Board or Executive Committee. Please contact your commission chair to express your view that will be presented to OISTAT GB/EC.
The Lighting Design Workshop will contribute to PQ and Scenofest 2011 and provide support for developing OISTAT centers, e.g. Bangladesh and East Africa.
The 2009 Scenography Commission Meeting and Costume Working Group meeting may be held either in Korea at WSD or in Japan prior to WSD. Dates and location will be confirmed shortly.
