ABSTRACT
This paper examines the shifting role of scenography in theatrical productions. This is done with the aim of identifying modern trends of scenic design beyond mere theorizing and visual representation. The paper hinges it’s discuss on the new role of scenic design as an actor alongside the human actor in integrating the dramatic essence in theatrical production to redefine the role of the scenographer as collaborator with the artistic director in a theatre ensemble. Scenography in this regard, plays the motivating role in creating a new movement that will herald a theatre of “images” rather than a theatre of “words”. In this lies the refined role of scenographic aesthetics. This is to be preferred as a performance style of theatre in the future, which will form a new platform for play presentation or staging that will lead to a redefinition of roles in theatrical production.
