Aims & Scope

Scene is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to a critical examination of space and scenic production. Scene welcomes new critical frameworks for the scholarship of creating a scene and invites contributions which explore all aspects of design contexts for live and recorded performance – particularly those which pay attention to the shaping of artistic vision, aesthetic sophistication, critical thinking and craft.
