Abstract [en]

The following thesis focuses on the use of technology within the field of theatre

scenography and serves as a starting point for a related final project. The author uses this work as an

opportunity to investigate the role of technology- both analogue and digital- for the development of theatre productions through a careful examination of its history; the patterns and movements in scenography as a reflection of broader social and philosophical context.

Technology serves as an important tool of innovation within the field of scenography.

However, its impact on the overall development of the dramatic action, as well as the focus of the audience, is also to be considered. The author aims to analyze the reasons for the implementation of elements such as lighting, projections and movement in scenography, as an addition to action's dynamic in the past and draw the conclusions for when such devices could be useful in the future.

Another important aspect analyzed and discussed in this work is the issue of

sustanability within theatre. The author analyzes current situation and discusses potential ways in which it could be improved- both on a local and global level- which then results in the final project discussed below. The project aims to serve as a long-term, sustainable alternative to the current approach to theatre production.

Using an exisiting project of the director Fabio Cherstich as a starting point of the project, the author strives to both fulfill the requirements of the individual "client", as well as to serve a greater cause of offering a new, sustainable approach to scenography through a design of a service surrounding the final product.
