Abstract:   (3156 Views)
Theater and architecture create space and the spirit of life through settings, and both possess the nature of movement, time, rhythm, light, and color. Space and time are the most important common elements of these two arts. Theater directors and designers can put on meaningful and identity- based performances if they make organic use of the human-space relationship in creating space. Phenomenology, due to its ability to recognize the relationship between man and the setting, could be effective in this process. This article analyzes the concept of space in theater directing and performance from the perspective of Christian Norberg Schulz. The main issue of this interdisciplinary research is the evaluation of related conceptual and practical indicators between architecture and theater. Thus, to achieve the main purpose of the research according to Schultz’s theories and viewpoints, “Einstein on the Beach” performance which was designed and directed by Robert Wilson was analyzed. Therefore, by analyzing Schultz’s phenomenological perspectives on the existing structure in space cognition, a descriptive- analytical method was used to achieve the criteria for evaluating space and its characteristics in theater directing. The results show that to improve the organic relationship between the audiences and the actors with the performance, phenomenological approach can be given identity and meaning to the theater scene and performance through the relationship between man and the setting in the creation of space.
Keywords: space, place, stage design, director, Christian Norberg Schulz, phenomenology, Robert Wilson
