The relation between theater and religion was all through history a double-sided sward, but in the same time an inseparable entity. Sometimes opposing and confronting each other, other times using each other's language as a cause, a object, a reason or even a subject, theater and faith both aim humans heart, one offering joys of the unseen and eternal life, while the other deals with tangible matter of life here on earth. The two meet in Teatro de La Abadía: a live heart beating in the body of the former Church of La Sagrada Familia, and in the Functions Hall, renamed as the Sala Juan de la Cruz and Sala José Luis Alonso. The stage and the public are set in proximity to each other, so sharing the theatrical emotion from human body to human mind is natural. This approach is based on words and synergy, continuing the great tradition of European theatre. Teatro de la Abadia became in the past ten years one of the best independent theatrical institutions in the Spanish capital, Mad
The Olympic Theater (Teatro Olimpico) in Vincenza is the last masterpiece of Andrea Palladio -one of the greatest architects of Italian Renaissance- and was not completed until after his death. This is the oldest surviving theater building in the world, being constructed in 1580-1585. Its value in the history of performing arts is without doubt inestimable, after becoming the first purpose-built theater in Europe in over a thousand years. The theater owns the oldest surviving stage set: the background designed by Vicenzo Scamozzi is a trompe-l'oeil installed in 1585 for Sophocles' Oedipus the King, the first performance held in the theater. Teatro Olimpico owns a stage where history was made. This theater witnessed most theatrical improvements in history. The trope-l'oeil or "tricking the eye" technique for example, is an art that uses a very realistic image in order to create optical illusion that shows objects in three-dimensions instead of being a two-dimensional paint.The use of
The Globe Theater in London has a very long history. Built for the first time in 1559 by Shakespeare's playing company, the theater could house up to 3,000 people in a three-storey open-air amphitheater about 30 m in diameter. Recent research indicates that a polygon of 20 sides outlined the interior of this original setting vs. the previous assumption of an octagonal shaped building. The angle of the perspective was drastically changed: while some people couldn't hear very well what was happening on scene, some others did not have a frontal view of the performance. Only 54 years after its opening, the Globe Theater was destroyed by a fire. One year later it was rebuilt and only another year later it was closed again by the Puritans. In 1644 the theater was pulled down. The Globe's Architecture was based on the Ancient Rome's Coliseum, the public being arranged in an amphitheatre. The initiative of rebuilding The Globe was Sarn Wanamaker's, an American producer, actor and directo
The playhouse imagined by the Düsseldorf architect Bernhard Pfau is one of the greatest theater constructions built after the war. Not only its curved lines and wavy walls, but also the on-going modern and experimental performances that are alive in this playhouse make the theater one the most modern theater institutions in Germany and not only. Although planning of the playhouse had begun in 1959, the political instability delayed with more than a decade the opening of the new playhouse; in the mean time the public was polarized, and with the final costs amounted to some 40 million DM, the opening on the 16Th of January 1970 turned into a complete scandal. No tickets were sold to the open public, and only guests were permitted to participate at the official opening performance. The demonstrates disputed public rights to take part of the cultural life of the city, but also aimed a general critique to traditional cultural institutions. Twenty people were arrested and several injured
