#01 Scenografi – Ulla Kassius
What does a scenographer actually do? What distinguishes the scenography from props and sceneries? How long has the theater been decorated? And how much do scenographs fight with directors?
In the first episode of Scenpodden we dive into the subject scenography – from earlier times decorative painting to the new technology media screens, from the small craft models to the great artistic visions.
This week’s guest is Ulla Kassius, stage designer and director with 40 years of experience on the stage floor. What does her workday look like? How much does a scenography cost? And what’s the strangest thing she ever put on a scene?
Scenpodden is led by Rebecca Örtman, director and artistic director of RATS Theater, together with Karin Helander, theater professor at Stockholm University.
The sectional picture shows parts of Ulla Kassius’s scenography for the Utopia performance at the Backatatern 2012.
