Sound, image, light in performance venues

13 of February '24

On November 14-15, 2023, the second edition of the symposium "Sound, Image, Light in Performance Objects" organized by the Polish OISTAT Center (International Organization of Stage Designers, Technicians and Theater Architects) and the Aleksander Zelwerowicz Theater Academy in Warsaw took place at the Collegium Nobilium Theater in Warsaw.

The symposium presented a broad overview of the latest knowledge and developments in performance architecture and technology involving sound, image and light. The event was aimed at all those involved in working in performance venues, museums, galleries, cultural administration staff, architects, stage designers, theater technologists, technicians, as well as academics and students of higher education, art and technical schools.

The exhibition could be seen in the Senate Room of the Theater Academy, and later in the gallery at the Zamoyski Palace, the headquarters of the Association of Polish Architects at 2 Foksal Street in Warsaw.

For the organizers, the event is also a form of thanks to late friends for their many years of service to PC OISTAT, their sustained substantive contributions and collegial cooperation. Ewa Więckowska-Kosmala, acoustician, and Maciek Wojciechowski, theater technologist, passed away in 2022 and 2023. They collaborated with many architects who were invited to participate in the symposium and exhibition.
