There are a number of models that suggest how scenographers and directors or choreographers may work together in creating the visual expression of a performance. The scenographer often takes the script or the director’s artistic idea as a point of departure, and translates that idea into a visual image. The scenographer often represents a "sparring partner” for the director or the choreographer.

In many companies, it is common that the artists create the scenography together, instead of involving a scenographer in the project, or the scenographer may be involved from a very early stage, and thus contributes to the creation of all parts of the performance. There are also different kinds of collective models, where the scenographer becomes an actively contributing stage artist. During this seminar, three scenographers - Signe Becker, HC Gilje and Carle Lange will shed light on their working methods. Director Victoria H. Meirik will talk about the way she works with space, and the seminar will explore the theater critic’s relation to the work of the scenographer in the subsequent panel discussion.
