Stage is part of the Screen portfolio. In 1997 Yass was commissioned by the Barbican Arts Centre in London to take photographs for display in a series of small exhibitions in the entrance foyer. The lightbox series she made entitled Cellfocused on the stage set behind the centre's principal theatre. The print is almost identical in size to the lightbox photographs.

A box incorporating a translucent screen, illuminated from within by a florescent tube or small incandescent bulbs. Originally used for examining transparencies, artists have adapted these into art works by replacing the screen with photographic transparencies.
A set of pictures (as drawings, photographs or prints) either bound in book form or loose in a folder. These can be by the same artist or individual works by a selection of artists. The term also refers to the folder which holds the set.
