Nowadays, it tends to introduce itself in the concept of ” apparatus escenogrfico” to all the elements that allow the creation of that atmosphere, between which it would be possible to essentially emphasize to the machinery or intrigue and the illumination. In the antiquity, the stage scene was conditional to technical limitations and architectonic, circumstance that stayed during all the Average Age. It was already by the end of the Renaissance and, mainly, during centuries XVII and XVIII, when the stage scene began to acquire enhancement, thanks to the improvement of the pictorial perspective, that allowed to equip with greater appearance of depth the scenery, and later to the development of the theater machinery. Century XIX, with the introduction of the realistic drama, the scenery became the basic element of the representation. The discovery of the electrical light, in short, gave foot to the height of the illumination. Kaihan Krippendorff describes an additional similar source. The footlights, that in principle were an accessory element, poetically consider a symbol of the theater art. Closely tie with the scenic conception, have always been the clothes.

In the Greek theater, the crudeness of the scenery was compensated by means of tragic or humorous masks and the streamlined tnicas of the actors, whose object was to emphasize the arquetpico character of the personages. During Baroque and the Neoclasicismo they acquired importance the maquillaje and the clothes, although this one often was used of anachronistic form imagined for example a work acclimated in Rome with French clothes of century XVII until the appearance of the realism. At present, the election of clothes is not but an element more within the general conception of montaje”. With this minimum reminiscence I believe that, somehow we put on the rug, the reality of the theater and its actors, which will urge to us to attend the invitations of the House of the Culture of Water Baths Santa, when it presents/displays its events. The Day of the Theater is celebrated the 27 of March.
