Text description provided by the architects. The outdoor theatre stage is built especially for 12 plays during the summer. Its main architectural goal is to create a closed, comfortable and intimate space that forms an immediate connection with the audience and the actors. The architecture frames the landscape in a way that the park, trees and the pond become an integral part of the stage-set.

The light wooden construction gives space and allows for dynamic stage lighting. Avoiding a concrete narrative in this solution, the stage is an abstraction, which sets the mood. We have approached the era and theme of the theatre project (beginning of the 20th century, futurism, young poets) from a different angle to visualize a complicated moment in European history.

After the 12 performances, the stage will be dismantled and the timber and boards used for other things. There is no need to use complicated materials, wood is a nice material that architects can easily understand and work with, it is also weather-proof.
