Still Point, Turning World:
Scenographic Reflections, Proposals and Provocations
Every four years PQ and Scenofest offer an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate, reflect on and challenge scenographic work from around this troubled globe. How can scenographers contribute in the ‘real’ world? What can they / we record, show, tell, participate in? Where are the significant projects now? Does this work matter? Where can it go in the next four years?
Reflections, Proposals and Provocations are invited in a variety of forms from practitioners, academics and those studying on Post Graduate taught or research degree courses. This project aims to provide both virtual and actual space for verbal, visual and aural essays that respond to contemporary scenographic issues.
Papers, visual and audio presentations should be limited to 10 minutes in length. They may also be submitted in the form of A1 size Posters for display at DAMU and on the OISTAT website. Abstracts are required for all types of presentation and will be presented on the OISTAT website.
Submission date – 5th May 2011 Notification date – 19th May 2011
Editorial team - Tal Itzhaki, Kathleen Irwin, Greer Crawley, Kate Burnett

Theatre Timeline Working Group
The OISTAT History &Theory and Technology Commissions are combining to launch the Theatre Timeline Working Group on Sunday 19 June at DAMU, Prague 14.30 – 16.00
This is an initial meeting of OISTAT members and others interested in the history of theatre architecture and technology. We hope that through discussion, reports of existing groups and proposals for projects, this working group can draw up an active programme of project based meetings.
