Les Convergences entre passé et futur dans les collections des arts du spectacle- Connecting Points: Performing Arts Collections Uniting Past and Future

Congrès de Munich - Munich Congress

Nicole Leclercq

Passé, présent et futur sont destinés à être intrinsèquement liés dans le traitement des collections des arts du spectacle. Car leur principale mission est bien de préserver le passé, de déployer des activités au présent et de mettre en place des stratégies pour le futur. Les défis quotidiens auxquels les collections des arts du spectacle font face se trouvent au cœur de ce croisement ; ce sont ces préoccupations que les auteurs, venant de tous horizons, cherchent à exposer et à développer dans ce volume d’actes. Ces thèmes ont été abordés lors du Congrès de la SIBMAS à Munich en 2010, le premier à avoir été organisé conjointement avec le Congrès mondial de la FIRT, renforçant ainsi les relations entre le monde de la recherche théâtrale et celui des collections des arts du spectacle.
Past, Present, Future – these are permanent connecting points in the work of performing arts collections. It is their crucial commitment to preserve the past, to spread out several activities in the present and to develop strategies for the future. The challenges of performing arts collections are in the middle of these crossroads, which is the theme of the SIBMAS Congress papers presented in this book. The various international contributions are concentrated on the main topics of performing arts collections daily tasks. They were presented and discussed at the SIBMAS Congress in Munich 2010, the first conference in cooperation with the IFTR World Congress, strengthening the relationship between theatre research and performing arts collections.

World Scenography Book Project

Extract



Peter MCKINNON

York University (Canada)

World Scenography1 is a new book series that will document and contextualise significant contemporary theatrical design worldwide since 1975. There has been no comprehensive documentation of global scenography since the four-volume series Stage Design throughout the World, by Belgian professor René Hainaux, covered the period 1935-1975. This new three-volume series, to be published both in print and online, will cover the periods of 1975-1990, 1990-2005, and 2005-2015 respectively. The first volume will be published at the USITT Conference in Long Beach, California in March 2012; Volume Two at the World Stage Design 2013; and Volume Three at the Prague Quadrennial 2015. It is anticipated that following the publication of these three volumes, OISTAT will continue to publish another volume every ten years. The book series is an official project of OISTAT, the International Organization of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians. The international editorial team for World Scenography will be led by co-editors Peter McKinnon (Canada) and Eric Fielding (USA).
