  • My thesis is about stage design and performance environments in the era of environmental (ethical) challenges. How do we represent nature and how do we construct (or ignore) the relationship to nature in performance spaces and in theatre? My thesis explores the ancestry of performance-spatial mindsets and strategies and how they are updated to the eco-critical 21st century. Furthermore, it examines how they can be developed towards a more holistic and environmentally sensitive practice.
