Black Box Theatre

This summer we worked on a “design and build” transformation of the foyer space at Black Box Theatre in Oslo, in collaboration with a-works (Cristian Stefanescu). The pilot project attempted to create a more including and flexible space, with mobile lightweight structures to facilitate the ever changing spatial needs of the theatre. In addition to re-organizing the space we introduced a new bar, technical booth, box office and DJ booth. The new furniture and translucent curtain panels divide the long room in to smaller zones, adapting to the current spatial need. The structures and installations are to a large degree made from technical or industrial materials from the performing art industry. The work is to be continued in 2018 after a short period of testing.
