Architecture at World Stage Design 2013 investigated the possibilities of architecture that exist in the creation of performative events. Through lectures, discussions, and workshops participants discovered innovative architectural and artistic concepts for an original and relevant theatre of tomorrow.
Radivoje Dinulović, designer, theorist and critic of architectural and scene spaces, author of the Theatre Architecture of the XX Century, gave a presentation on ‘Scene Design and Architecture of Performance’. PQ2011 Gold Medal for Theatre Architecture winner, Andreas Skourtis, posed questions on architecture as scenography in’Designing The Stage as a Starting Point of a Scenographic Synthesis’. The importance of architectural and artistic initiatives in the process of revitalisation of our cities was discussed with Andrius Ciplijauskas, author, initiator and coordinator of ‘BEE part’ initiative in Lithuania. Lecturer in Architecture and Performance at Bartlett School of Architecture, Matthew Butcher, gave instructions for staging the city; and Mia David,member of the ‘October Art Salon’ managing board – one of the oldest and most important international visual arts events in Balkan region, looked at ‘new homes for the art’.
