Scenography is not an autonomous art form. Its significance and capacity to visualise emerges in the interaction with the actors on stage and is preceded by the collaboration with directors and other artists involved in creating a performance. Therein lies the challenge for the stage designer. Lars-Åke Thessman is one of Sweden’s most acclaimed scenographers, and here he discusses the profession based on six different perspectives, guiding readers through the creative process. Through both image and text, he touches on the collaboration with the director and illustrates how sketches, models, and drawings are translated into the ephemeral magic of full-scale stage design.
