In the concepts for the interior design of the actually empty space for a theater performance, the relationship between stage and audience is of initial interest. The form of setting up a stage in a concrete theatre space always depends on the character of the text in its historical period and the habits of the actors and their audience. As an example, the lecture questions the consequences for the scenic play and the authenticity of the performance. At the Berlin Schaubühne, Jan Pappelbaum has the ideal universal theatre space in which he consistently incorporates his insights into the stages of further performances. In the lecture he talks about his experiences and makes his interest in the self-evidence of contemporary aesthetics comprehensible by researching and using concrete materials and situations from everyday life, using documentary photographs.
