Temporary Playhouse Designed As Portable Pop-Up Kit [My Ideal City]
Theater On The Fly is a temporary, multi-purpose space that is easily configured to host a variety of performances.
- 12 may 2013
Theatre On The Fly is a temporary theater constructed by the Assemble design collective for the Chichester Festival Theater in the county of West Sussex in the UK. Multi-purpose and flexible by design, both the stage and seating reconfigures to host indoor and outdoor performances. Fashioned entirely out of donated, recycled and reusable materials, exposed structural components give the theater a raw, in-the-moment feel complementing the festival theater experience.
After nine weeks of use for the Chichester Festival, the theater has been dismantled and is being stored for future use in a different location.
Architects and planners are experimenting with temporary venues designed to be quickly deployed and assembled to host temporary events like performances and films. These pop up culture experiences connect with an ever-changing audience, while highlighting locally sourced content and bringing cultural enrichment into people’s lives.
