Designers, choreographers, and performers frequently face a traditional empty space or, as is often the case, face a nontraditional space and then question how to "fill" or design within it. What elements help create the functionality and appropriateness of a performance space? We will explore a variety of spaces, western, non-western, traditional, non-traditional, and the "performers" who use or have used them. We will then focus on design elements such as scenery, lighting and costumes, and examine the many ways these elements serve the text and/or vision of a performance piece within these spaces.
