SPACES: creating spaces, according spaces. On the basis of an examination of the cultural memory of varying epochs up to
the present day, the study is seen as a laboratory for analyses, development and information. As the centre of theatrical
presentations, the stage not only explores classic theatre, but also new areas and spaces and social situations, as well as
known and still unknown scenic realities through the employment of standard and new media.
