Lilit L. Manaseryan
In the 20th century, the stage space was understood as one of the most important theatrical categories.
Culturologist, philosopher E. Surio distinguishes two types of stage space: a cube and a sphere. Surio highlights the main characteristics of these two types of spaces: isolation, the unchanging point of view of the audience, the specific material environment characteristic of the cube, and the open nature of the spherical space, involving the audience in its radius, making him a participant of the performance.
