Theatre is a performance art form which discusses events of human life. Performances are being made in theatre space, found space, site-specific space and virtual space. And these spaces are mastered by designers. Opportunities for the designer have never been so varied or the territory uncharted. Scenography is a broad term that incorporates an intricate matrix of overlapping practices any one of which it is impossible to study in isolation. This paper looks at what designers do at the process and practice of design and changing role of the designer over time. It examines the ways in which the visual and material elements of theatre and performance have been perceived at certain key moments in the past and the ways in which these perceptions have been subject to change.
