The New Stagecraft-

Towards the end of the 19th century, two designers revolted against the flat scenery with realistic pictures painted on it. They thought it seemed wrong to surround 3d actors with 2d sets. These two designers were Adolph Appia (1862-1928) and Edward Gordon Craig (1872-1966)
Their controversial ideas would become the main basis of the New Stagecraft; this was mainly involved scenery that suggested a mood or setting without showing it in a realistic way.
