Mise-en-scène

Mise-en-scène emphasises more than just adding together elements of staging in any literal, technical sense. As 'mere technique' or 'a question of good composition,' it is rather the basis of what constitutes the actual place and space of image, what it signifies.


In this sense Mise-en-scène offers a concept which recognises the image as a place of work, a site of meaning and production, of precisely staging. It offers, in a manner that does not divide from content, the space in which to think the question - What has been staged here?
