HOW TO CREATE SPACE FOR A STORY?


In the basement of GT22, Moment in cooperation with the Sonda Foundation and other active organizations begin to create space for Intimate stage that will be intended for theatre performances, concerts and other social events. The idea of ​​the Intimate stage is designed as a flexible space that would try to meet the needs of all the events, which will take place in it.

In the context of scenography workshop we will investigate the potential of existing space through space and light experiments. On three days long workshop with already established young Slovenian scenographers, Ajda Primožič and Matic Gselman, we will learn the basics of theatre architecture and scenography, examine the needs and conditions for the creation of theatrical performances, studying the relationship between audience and performers, and trying out different spatial configuration of the stage. We will explore the interlacement of scenography and the light that they are joined at the hip. We will learn about the design and operation of the local theatre and visit the reference stage. The final product of the workshop will outline the idea solutions for the opening of Intimate stage with the scenic and lighting placement.
