Abstract

2. This issue is part of my research that has converged in the publication of the book Scenografe just released, which contains a review of women in theatre design and their role from avanguarde to nowadays, but also their struggle to obtain specific positions in the theatre. For a long time, women set designers remained invisibile, on the edge of the official scene, excluded, erased. Here is Tania Moisewitch, one of the forgotten stage designer, who has crieted the first set of The Cherry Orchad, in 1954 directed by Giorgio Strehler. 3. Why so few Women in stage design? It is common knowledge that among of all the theatrical disciplines, the field of design, production, and technical theatre are the most male-dominated. The theatre continues to be a place of great discrimination, as employment statistics show. A research by Porsche Mac Guineess about the numbers of male and fimale designers, hired at League of Resident Theatres (((The League of Resident Theatres is the largest professional theater association in the United States, with 75 member theaters located in every major market in the U.S., including 29 states )) shows a siries of graphics, highlighting the professions with a large presence of men (in green), including stage design and the sound, video and lighting sectors. For the stage designer positions, 78.1% are held by men; the situation is reverst for costumes, where 70 %are held by women.
