Otacive hlediste Cesky Krumlov / historicke ohlednuti

Fenomén divadla ma v Ceskem Krumlove stale domovske pravo uz od stredoveku - prave tady se zrodila mnohokrat nova divadelni reforma i tradice. Pomineme-li zde aktivity divadla jezuitskeho i dvorskeho v baroknim divadle, pak mezníkem "moderniho" divadla je nesporne fenomen plenerového JIHOCESKEHO DIVADELNIHO FESTIVALU.U zrodu Otaciveho hlediste stoji významny divadelni architekt a scenograf Joan Brehms (1907-1995) s reziserem JD Ottou Haasem.

Nicmene uz rok pote je zbudováno "velke" otacive hlediste pro 400 lidi. Pred nim pak dvojice Haas-Brehms inscenuje Jiraskovu Lucernu. Take pro dalsi - sedesaty - rok dostava hlediste novou podobu, je rozsireno na 550 mist, pevne zabudovano do zeme a pohaneno elektromotorem.

"Nova" tocna, uvedena do provozu v roce 1994 byla realizovana a.s. Skoda Plzen. Ma kapacitu 644 diváku, oboustranne plynuly pohyb a hmotnost 650 tun.Umoznuje realizovat puvodni myslenku vynalezcu tohoto divadelniho principu, totiz " jako na sirokem platne rozvíjet dej kolem hlediste postaveneho pred letohradkem Bellarie na otacejici se amfiteatrálni konstrukci".

Revolving Auditorium Ceský Krumlov / a historical retrospection

The institution of theatre has had its "right of domicile" in Ceský Krumlov since the Middle Ages - it was this place where new theatre forms and traditions have often been born. Apart from the activities of the Jesuit and court theatres at the Baroque theatre, the boundary of the "modern" theatre is unquestionably the phenomenon of the open-air SOUTH BOHEMIAN THEATRE FESTIVAL. The person present at the origin of later activities was the notable theatre architect and stage designer Joan Brehms (1907-1995) with the director of the South Bohemian Theatre Otto Haas.

The first, "small-scale" experimental performance was the play "Lost Face" by Weisenborn on the 9th June 1958. The first improvised revolving auditorium could seat hardly 60 spectators and was driven by human power. However, a "large" revolving auditorium for 400 visitors was built as early as a year later, and the team Haas - Brehms staged "The Lantern" by Jirásek in front of it.

For the further - sixtieth - year the auditorium has got a new appearance, its seating capacity is extended to 550 seats, it is firmly installed in the ground and driven by an electric motor. The "new" revolving auditorium, which was put into operation in 1994, was constructed by the joint-stock company a.s. Škoda Plzen. It has a seating capacity for 644 spectators, smooth motion in both directions and the weight of 650 tons. It enables to realise the original idea of the inventors of this theatre principle, i.e. "developing the story, like on a broad canvass, around the auditorium rotating on an amphitheatrical construction, built in front of the summer palace Bellaria".

Technical data:

Seating capacity: 644 spectators, total weight of construction: 650 tons, base diameter: 21.3 m. Elevation: 7.6 m, driven by 4 electric motors with the power of 15 KW (1460 revolutions/min). Number of wheels carrying the revolving auditorium: 120 pieces
