Theatrical Objects

The German language brach of SITM organizes a regional colloquium in Wienhausen near Celle, 7-9 March 2018. The topic of the Colloquium is “theatrical objects”, which means all kinds of objects or “things” related to medieval theatre: stage props, costumes, stage machines, pageant wagons, scaffoldings etc. that were used for theatrical or semi-theatrical performances. It could also mean reliquiaries, figurines, monstrances, or other liturgical objects that were carried along in processions, or images, carpets, books etc. that either document performances or could have inspired them.

Proposals are welcome from all members of SITM, but be warned that the conference language is German. See our call for papers.


This will be our meeting room: the summer refectory of Wienhausen.
