We are pleased to announce the publication of the first volume in the new Performance + Design series from Bloomsbury Methuen Drama:

Scenography Expanded: An Introduction to Contemporary Performance Design

Edited by Joslin McKinney and Scott Palmer

Scenography Expanded is a foundational text offering readers a thorough introduction to contemporary performance design, both in and beyond the theatre. It examines the potential of the visual, spatial, technological, material and environmental aspects of performance to shape performative encounters. It analyses examples of scenography as sites of imaginative exchange and transformative experience and it discusses the social, political and ethical dimensions of performance design. The international range of contributors and case studies provide clear perspectives on why scenographic design has become a central consideration for performance makers today.
