Thematic Talk “The Practical and Experimental Nature of Theatre Architecture”

Speaker: Mathias Woo, Creator and Artistic Director of the Project

Can experiments be carried out only in practical theatre space?  What is practical theatre space?  What are the determining factors for theatre design and practical applications of stage technology?  Examples will be drawn from some small theatres in Tokyo to illustrate the relationship between the experimental and practical dimensions of theatre.

What is Freespace?

Freespace is situated in the centre of the Art Park of the West Kowloon Cultural District, and it is scheduled to open in 2019. It is a flexible performance space that includes a black box theatre (33m x 20m x 10m) that can accommodate 450 people seated or 900 standing, a foyer café and bar with facilities for live music performance, a multi-function conference room, and a large open air lawn that can be used for hosting large-scale outdoor events.

 

What has Freespace to do with Tech Lab?

Theatre is a live experience.

The audience enter a theatre, and experience a live performance in the same space, at the same time, watching the same performers, interacting with the same stage lighting, sound and multi-media effects. In a theatre performance, the technical aspects (staging, lighting, sound) are elements of performing arts just as important as the performers, while the entire theatre space (architecture) itself is constructed by technologies. “Freespace Tech Lab” is a three-year project infusing innovative stage technology and performing arts, providing a platform for exchange between related technology providers of performing arts and participants, with a view to enhancing the applications of stage technology.
