This special issue aims to provide space to consider the state of scenography and performance design within Australia, ranging across creative practice, pedagogical approaches and evolutions, and research inquiry. On the cusp of a new decade, Australian performance finds itself within the context of a turbulent political landscape, which has seen the devaluation of the arts at a federal level and instability in the funding landscape, as well as ecological disasters from fires, floods and drought; persistent humanitarian crises and an inability to reach humane solutions for those seeking asylum in our country; and finally, the pernicious impact of European settlement and the marginalisation of First Nations and indigenous voices.
Against this backdrop, this special issue welcomes contributions on the state of Australian performance and their scenographies. It presents perspectives on the evolution and diversification of design practices and philosophies tied to the unique Australian experience, across a range of performance genres including dance, theatre, opera and inter- and transdisciplinary practices. Submissions could address the following points:
Submissions could be in the form of essays, case studies of practice, interviews and roundtables capturing diverse perceptions on Australian design.
Guest editor: Tessa Rixon. Journal Co-editors: Christine White and Alison Oddey.
