TAPETENWECHSEL/TURNING POINTS – Premiere

Tapetenwechsel (= change of scenerery) – a dance evening with five choreographies by the dancers of the Landesbühnen Sachsen GmbH in cooperation with the master’s course “Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum” of the Technical University of Berlin.

The cooperation between the Dance Company of the State Theatres of Saxony and the Master’s course “Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum” lives from the examination of different artistic approaches and narrative styles.
The young dancers of the Landesbühnen, who stem from Italy, Croatia, Ukraine and Russia, have come a long way and have already experienced some joyful or even painful changes of sceneries. The outfitters and video artists from Germany, Serbia, Austria, Colombia and South Korea accompany the choreographers’ creative confrontation with the turning points of their lives. They associatively link stage, light, costume and video sequences with the themes of loss, the search for identity and the fear of a future that may already be lost.

Premiere 11.01.2020 at 7:30 on the studio stage of Landesbühnen Sachsen, Radebeul.

Der Frieden

Greece has been at war for so long that no one can remember its causes. The farmer Trygaios swings himself onto a dung beetle to climb Mount Olympus and frees the goddess of peace. But not everyone is happy with that… Der Frieden is a comedy by Aristophanes. It was awarded with the second prize in the Dionysia competition in 421 BC. Peter Hacks revised the play in 1962.

As part of the competition for the realisation of the fourth collaboration with the Theater Chemnitz, concept ideas for stage design and costumes for the play production “Der Frieden” by Peter Hacks were developed in the summer semester 2019. Under the direction of Prof. Frank Hänig and in close cooperation with the responsible director Branko Janack and the dramaturge Kathrin Brune, students developed several drafts and the stage and costume designs of Jan Klammer and Una Jankov were selected.

Premiere is on 27. 09. 2019 in the east wing of the Theater Chemnitz.

Stage Design: Jan Klammer (2. Semester, TU Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum)
Costumes: Una Jankov (2. Semester, TU Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum)

MODELLBAUSEMINAR – MIKROWOHNEN

MODELLBAUSEMINAR – MIKROWOHNEN

The smallest wheelchair-accessible apartment – What does it look like and what does it cost?
The model as a means of communication: this summer, we are devoting ourselves to designing the smallest possible accessible apartment using models.

Period: 22 July – 02 August 2019, daily 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Lecturers: Annette Müller, Robert Niemann, Stine Kolbert (responsible for cost calculation, FG Bauökonomie, TU Berlin)
Registration deadline: 10 July 2019 by e-mail to info@modellunddesign.de
Study courses: preferably Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning, Civil Engineering
Credits: Optional subject: model construction 6 ECTS, possible further processing as WP Bauökonomie (course cost calculation)
Location: TU Berlin (at the course of studies Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum), Ackerstrasse 76, 13355 Berlin, Germany

Questions about abstraction, reduction, materiality, materiality, construction and technical implementation are always answered on the model.

The aim of the course is the development of intelligent solutions for handicapped-accessible (if necessary, wheelchair accessible) usable, smallest possible housing units. Depending on the design idea, this can be done in different scales: beginning with the entire construction (from public to private areas) through the layout of the floor plan to the 1:1 detail solution. Together we will decide which model form best communicates the developed ideas, whereby accessibility will be a natural part of the design task.

 

 

100 Jahre Friedrichstadtpalast

The 100th stage anniversary of the Friedrichstadt-Palast (previously Großes Schauspielhaus) is to provide the broadest possible picture of the past 100 years in a series of events in the 2019/2020 season and beyond. The aim is to open windows through which the history and stories of the theatre, its surroundings and its art can be experienced. The Palst should not only appear in the past, but also the present and on its way into the future. Under the mentoring of Johann Jörg, the thematic concept and design of a parcours in the sense of an urban staging, a “red thread” from the former location Großes Schauspielhaus to the Friedrichstadt-Palast will be developed. The historical connection of both locations is to be made visible with 4 to 5 urban interventions and stations.

Students: Takayoshi Goto, Cecilia Nercasseau Gibson, Tabata Schröder, Martin Siemann, Anna Syrianou, Carina Wolf, Junghee Yoon

The topic
In the coming years, the TU Berlin will have the means at its disposal to restructure the campus behind the main building. The following sub-areas are to be taken into account:

  • Realisation of the second section of Hertzallee
  • Construction of a museum pavilion for temporary exhibitions and for the Mineralogical Collection, one of the 5th largest and most important mineralogical collections in Germany.
  • Development of tourist knowledge paths to open the campus for regional, national and international visitor

During this compact seminar, students of architecture and landscape architecture will jointly develop various design scenarios, which will be made available as a basis for discussion for further planning. The aim is to develop design ideas that integrate the subprojects Hertzallee, Museum Pavilion and Knowledge Paths conceptually, thematically and creatively into a coherent overall concept. The students present their concepts in the form of models. Depending on the concept, models of the entire working area or detailed models can be created. The three-dimensional results of this model building seminar will make a fundamental contribution to concept development.

IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES!

IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES!

Workshop for cultural heritage – connecting past and future visions of theatre architecture

Timeframe: 28th march till 12th april 2019, Studiengang Bühnenbild_Szenischer Raum  TU Berlin
Tutors: Pablo Dornhege, Franziska Ritter with Prof. Bri Newesely (Beuth HS) and Hubert Eckart (DTHG)
Registration deadline for students: 31st January 2019. Number of participants limited (18). details see below…

This twelve-day workshop aims at the conception of communication-strategies for historical and future theatre architectures as well as their digital implementation in physical, augmented and virtual spaces.

Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) are not technological fads, but will change our media landscape permanently. They open up new ways of experiencing content in spatial systems, they create new approaches and levels of communication. Both technologies must be understood as independent media with different mechanisms, visual languages and formal necessities.

On the occasion of the European “Sharing Heritage” year, we are asking which potentials digital tools such as VR and AR can generate in the museum and theatrical context and how the accessibility to im/material “theatre objects” can be improved. Two concrete theatres in Berlin are at the centre of the investigation. On the one hand: the no longer existing “Großes Schauspielhaus”  by architect Hans Poelzig, whose 100th anniversary will be celebrated in 2019. Historical objects in collections and theatre archives, such as drawings, photos, models, audio tracks, tell us today about expressionist architecture and visionary directorial concepts. With the help of VR, these are to be brought to life. On the other hand: the existing building of the Komische Oper Berlin, which, like many theatres, is soon undergoing reconstruction and renovation. With the help of Augmented Reality, current topics and, above all, future visions are to be made tangible to the specialist audience as a planning aid or on site.

In six interdisciplinary teams, various conceptual ideas and their prototypical realizations for digital and interactive services in VR and AR are developed for these two applications. The workshop teaches how virtual and augmented reality can be used to create narrative spaces. The participants will learn how to create an interactive VR/AR experience using the Unity software. No previous knowledge of 3D modeling or programming is required. In a second phase the results will be further elaborated and will then be presented at conferences and congresses in an international context (e.g. Quadriennale Prague, Stage Set Scenery Berlin). Further cooperation is expressly desired.

Impulses will be provided by guest lectures (e.g. cyberräuber) and excursions to best practice examples in Berlin (e.g. Virtual Konzerthaus Berlin), as well as guided tours to the Komische Oper Berlin, the  Stadtmuseum Berlin theatre collection and the museum of architecture TU Berlin.

This workshop is aimed at students from space or theatre-related courses (e.g: architecture, scenography, exhibition design, stage design, stage technology, art/technology/theatre studies, cultural studies, museum studies, communication design, art in context).

Patron of the workshop is the DTHG (Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft e.V.) within the framework of the project “Theatre Landscape”, supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media – in the European “Sharing Heritage” Year.

Number of participants: 18 (limited)

Required Hard- & Software: Mac or PC notebook, should not be older than 3 years
3-button mouse (touchpad, drawing tablets and Apple mice are not suitable for working in Unity)
Unity 3D Personal – free accounts available at: https://store.unity.com/
(Please update the installation shortly before the workshop!)

Short application: until 31st January 2019 by email to: franziska.ritter@tu-berlin.de
Motivation and short CV, if available: Portfolio with work samples from relevant areas (no previous knowledge in VR / AR required). The participants will be announced on 5 February 2019.

Language of instruction: English (feedback in German possible)
credits: Recognition as academic achievement (6 credit points) possible.
