My name is Tanja Beer and I am the editor of Ecoscenography.com
This is an online platform for theatre artists and designers who are interested in the emerging concept of ‘Ecoscenography’ (ecological design for performance). The site features content that explores ways of bringing an ecological focus to the performing arts, both in scholarship and in practice. The platform seeks to be a hub for all things ‘eco’ in theatre and performance design, with opportunities to forefront leading practitioners and thinkers that are driving this emerging field into the mainstream.
Over the coming months, Ecoscenography.com aims to explore the online space in a novel, diverse and engaging way, with regular calls for contributions. The platform links with the Ecoscenography facebook group and my forthcoming book on Ecoscenography; combined, these initiatives aim to provide an architecture upon which the future of the field can be built. To assist in the revitalisation of the platform, I am joined by Monique Roy who is currently in her final year of studies as a Bachelor of Fine Arts Technical Production student at the Queensland University of Technology.
