Staged Animality

Tutkimustuotos: Artikkeli kirjassa/konferenssijulkaisussaAbstractScientificvertaisarvioitu


I have worked some 30 years in different theatres, the last 12 of which in The Finnish National Opera and Ballet (FNOB) as a Prop Designer. During my extensive career in theatrical arts, I have designed and manufactured numerous animal characters for different performances and events. In my practice-led research, I study the staging and representation of animals within performing arts. In this paper I argue that that the role of animals is based on old fables. Instead of those stories, we should perform stories where non-human animals are seen as
an equal actor. I will introduce a current exhibition at the Theatre Museum. It is a part of the Props in Focus exhibition called Noah’s Ark. There are artificial animals
collected from several performances of different theatres and student’s works. My approach is critical of the animal image presented in performing arts.
