Sculpture in theatre : the roles motionless sculptures “play” in theatre

By Vitalia Samuilova


This work is speaking about the use of non animated puppets, sculptures, figures and mannequins in theatre. I was exploring the work of my preferable sculptors and performing art makers. All of them are exploring the subjects of memory and death and their relation towards presence. They often use anthropomorphic figures, human sculptures. Mainly I was interested in thinking and analyzing what are the themes of the theatre pieces where we use non animated figures. What are the characters they are embodying. Can they represent anybody, or the range is limited and why. What are the relations between alive and dead body on the stage and outside of it. Collecting thoughts of the sculptors helped me to understand the nuances in the relation between sculpture and space, about importance of stillness, about importance of being yourself and speaking about what you know and what you are , importance of inspiration that comes from the things you experience
