Summary:Explores Appia's innovations: replacing the flat painted scenery and declamatory style of the 19th century with plastic environments for three-dimensional actors and actresses, using mobile lighting and counterpointing visuals with music. His designs for Isben and Shaw productions link 20th century theatre to the freedoms of ancient Greek drama and mark Appia as the father of modern theatrical design.
