burn down the curtain | Die IGVW Flammprobe @ Safety in action on stage
Mai 17 um 10:45 – Jun 18 um 11:45

The IGVW Flmam Sample results from the SQP7 Dekobau and is aimed at manufacturers and users of decorations and describes the procedure for testing materials in the field of decorative construction. The tests according to this procedure serve to determine the behaviour of flammable materials when flamed with a hand burner under defined test conditions.
The test method is suitable for assessing the flammability of materials and material combinations in event technology (e.g. in decorative construction) by typical ignition sources such as those found in event technology (e.g. spotlights, pyrotechnics).
Furthermore, the test result can be used to assess the fire behaviour (contribution to the fire) of the materials.

The test procedure is presented live and addresses technical directors, workshop managers and stage craftsmen.

Speaker: Stefan Kluge (ZDF),

Show “Heritage Theatre Technology in Contemporary Scenography” @ DTHG booth hall 22
Jun 18 um 11:00 – 11:30

From classic Baroque technology and scene changes to contemporary use of this versatile machinery. First historic use is explained and how this heritage technology can serve contemporary scenography. An imaginative scenographer can surprise you with the most unexpected use of the miscellaneous opportunities of this neglected technology in contemporary stage design for present-day productions.

Contemporary theatre machinery accommodation consists of bars going up and down, be it with counterweight system or be it by computer commanded motors. The “Baroque” theatre machinery in the understage adds horizontal moves with a wing chariot system and brings scenic elements up from the understage with a cassette system. With restoration/modernisation of historic theatres, this understage with machinery is sacrificed to use mostly as extra storage space.

With real scale material, we demonstrate alternatives for heritage theatre technology, building an “understage” of 28mm on top of each available performance floor to be able to do the same movements as produced by a heritage wing chariot system. Also different flying movements based on heritage technology will be demonstrated. And what to think about a revolve platform moving on and off stage? All those alternatives are very budget-friendly and of course very sustainable, working on human power and counterweighted where needed: an alternative elevator system can prove that.

Theatre as a barrier-free workplace? @ RoundTable 21
Jun 18 um 11:00 – 11:45

It is not only in the course of demographic change that the barrier-free design of cultural buildings is of more concern than ever to those responsible; the social discourse on equal rights on the labour market is also ensuring a steadily growing presence of this topic.

Theatre stages in particular pose increasingly detailed challenges due to their spatial individuality and their demands on the technical infrastructure.

This lecture is dedicated to accessibility from the point of view of event technology and the design of the necessary workplace. Can the confrontation with barriers modest new efficiencies? What means can be used in synergy to achieve performative and receptive quality?

Speaker: Alexander von Graffenried (BWKI)

From Technology to Application, a practical introduction to beam steering technology and directed sound   @ SoundLab
Jun 18 um 11:30 – 12:15

Based on Kling & Freitag’s project of providing the ideal acoustic equipment for the Elbphilharmonie, we’ll present the technical use of beam steering and the advantages of targeted sound emission, from the idea to concept and realization. Thereby, a focus will be on the acoustic analyses and the application of the VIDA L/C system in the Elbphilharmonie, which will uncover how beam steering technology is advantageous over conventional loudspeaker technologies e.g. line arrays and point sources.

Variable acoustics at the example of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg @ SoundLab
Jun 18 um 12:00 – 12:45

Variable acoustic measures in the form of curtains have been used for decades. In the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, innovative roll banner systems were used to make the large hall acoustically variable. But why do variable acoustic elements have to be installed in a new concert hall that has also gone down in history as one of the most expensive in the world? Shouldn’t a concert hall be acoustically optimally designed on its own? These and other exciting questions on the subject of variable room acoustics will be answered in this lecture.

IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES! 
Connecting archival theatre objects to a future audience @ Immersive Showroom Halle 20
Jun 18 um 13:00 – 13:45

Virtual and augmented realities (VR and AR) change our media landscape sustainably. On the occasion of the European cultural heritage year “Sharing Heritage”, we are devoting ourselves to the question of how the accessibility of material “theatre objects” in archives and museums can be improved and which potentials VR and AR can generate in this context. At the centre of our investigations is one of the most important theatrical buildings of the last century – the no longer existing Große Schauspielhaus Berlin (director Max Reinhardt, architect Hans Poelzig, realised in 1919 as a conversion of a market hall, demolished in 1985). Design sketches, architectural drawings, documents, sound documents and other artefacts from the theatre archives are testimony to an eventful past that had to be made visible. In the lecture, three mediation concepts and their prototypical applications will be presented, which open up this pool in different ways and for a broad audience.

How can AR and VR be used to create narrative spaces and make theatre history an experience?

The project ideas were developed within the framework of the international workshop “IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES” under the direction of Prof. Dr. Bri Newesely, Hubert Eckart, Franziska Ritter and Pablo Dornhege, under the patronage of the DTHG (Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft e.V.) within the framework of the project “Theatre Landscape”, sponsored by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media – in the European Cultural Heritage Year “Sharing Heritage”.

Presented projects:
“Sketching Heritage by Mercedes Lozano, Anan Yoon Lee.
“One Show – Ten Perspectives” by Rebecca Eisele, Elena Kunau, Dominique Lauvernier, Lea Schorling

Safety First – Basic safety requirement for mechanical equipment using a 2D point hoist system @ Safety in action on stage
Jun 18 um 13:00 – 14:00

The stage as a workplace is characterised by the fact that it is necessary and scenically intended to work under suspended and moving loads. In order not to endanger the health of the actors and employees, various safety functions have proven themselves over time. It is particularly important for all drives to be stopped when several mechanical devices are involved in a movement at the same time. SBS uses a compact 2D airframe to show basic safety functions, their components and mode of operation.

Speaker: Sebastian Weber (SBS),

VALtec – Variable Acoustic Lens – Perfect beam steering also in the high frequency range @ SoundLab
Jun 18 um 13:30 – 14:15

Theatre stages and auditoriums are used variably almost everywhere. For sound technology, this means complex conversions or lower transmission quality. In the last few years, sound lines have gained acceptance in sound reinforcement technology whose vertical dispersion behaviour can be changed with the aid of integrated electronics. Beam steering offers optical, acoustic and handling advantages. For speech reproduction, an arrangement of high-quality broadband chassis with appropriate equalization is sufficient. When reproducing high frequencies, however, the dimensions of the transducers used are in the order of magnitude of the wavelengths to be radiated, which leads to various problems.

Speaker: Dieter Klein (KS Audio),

Progress Report for the Multipurpose Auditorium at the STCC (SwissTech Convention Center) @ RoundTable 21
Jun 18 um 14:00 – 14:45

To appeal to producers and patrons, auditoriums in multipurpose halls must now find ways to host many different types of events over the duration of an entire year to remain efficient and sustainable. Space modularity is becoming widely recognized as a practical solution to deal with this issue. The SwissTech Convention Center (STCC) which capitalized on such built-in flexibility to create efficient and dynamic spaces is a prime example of a facility able to both enhance users’ experience and respond to today’s entertainment and meeting industry requirements. The STCC was made modular and scalable through a Gala Venue® automated Flooring and Seating System as well as movable walls provided by Skyfold. As one of the most flexible facilities in the world, it can rapidly configure halls with capacities ranging from 330 to 3000 seats, separate into 3 different auditoriums and can adapt layouts to suit a broad variety of entertainment and business events. Almost completely booked in its first year of operation and in subsequent years, the STCC is rightly considered the benchmark for future automated multipurpose auditoriums. This presentation will give a comprehensive progress report for the STCC including events and use of this exciting modular building.

Speaker: Robert Heimbach (V.P. Gala Systems),

LED technology and energy efficiency in theaters, light & shadow @ RoundTable 21
Jun 18 um 15:00 – 15:45

LED lighting is gaining more and more importance in the light technology market. This development definitely includes our stages and function halls as well. Although this technology has reached a remarkable degree of perfection over recent years and offers major advantages, there may be deficiencies as well. We would like to use an exemplary project to point out both the strong and the weak points this technology involves when installed in the various venues, and then discuss them controversially with you. Where does LED lighting set limits to artistic freedom? Which are the benefits this energy-efficient technology provides and how can we use it to best effect? With our innovative brands we are able to help you minimize any problems that may arise.

Measure the dynamics of the fall @ Safety in action on stage
Jun 18 um 15:00 – 16:00

IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES! 
Future visions of theatre architecture @ Immersive Showroom Halle 20
Jun 18 um 15:45 – 16:30

The growing need to communicate abstract concepts and complex visions of the future makes the use of virtual and augmented reality as part of communication strategies interesting. As a medium, technology can facilitate access to content and stimulate public discourse. It can be used as a tool to promote the development of new ideas and concepts.

On the occasion of the European cultural heritage year “Sharing Heritage”, we are devoting ourselves to the question of what potentials VR and AR can generate in the theatre context and how this technology can make visions of the future tangible in the course of renovation and reconstruction, and accompany planning and design processes. This was investigated using the example of the Komische Oper, which, like many theatres, will undergo a comprehensive renovation process over the next few years. Three mediation concepts and their prototypical applications were developed, which are presented in the lecture and provide an outlook on future developments.

The project ideas were developed within the framework of the international workshop “Im/material Theatre Spaces” led by Prof. Dr. Bri Newesely, Hubert Eckart, Franziska Ritter and Pablo Dornhege, under the patronage of the DTHG (Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft e.V.) within the framework of the project “Theatre Landscape”, sponsored by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media – in the European Cultural Heritage Year “Sharing Heritage”.

All projects can be tested live in the Immersive Showroom, Hall 20.

Presented projects:
“Future of … La Boheme” Takayoshi Goto, Maria Kobylenko, Maria Emilie Bürger
“Comic Forum” Alexander Walmsley, Johanna Rummel, Lotus Lien, Janik Albrecht

D8 Plus electric chain hoist | an all-rounder of a special case @ Safety in action on stage
Jun 18 um 16:00 – 17:00

Although the designations for the rules and regulations of the trade association have changed in recent years, the designation D8 Plus electric chain hoist has been able to assert itself on the market. This is an indicator for the manifold use of these electric chain hoists equipped with an additional brake, which in daily use may only be loaded with half the original specified load capacity.

With the exception of the brakes, the D8 Plus electric chain hoist is thus dimensioned according to the principle of intrinsic safety and the use of the second brake fulfils the requirements of the single fault safety principle. The D8 Plus electric chain hoist can therefore be used to hold loads above persons without secondary securing and is an indispensable component of the daily work above the heads of visitors and employees.

The various application possibilities of the D8 Plus electric chain hoists will be presented live and in colour with a truss joint and the motor control required for the application.

Speaker: Torsten Simsch (cast C.Adolph & RST Distribution GmbH),

Speaker: Dominik Kübler (Conductix Wampfler),

With DIN SPEC to the standardized Iron Curtain @ RoundTable 22
Jun 18 um 16:00 – 17:30

Hardly any other technical facility in the theatre world has been more discussed and questioned than the Iron Curtain.
In April 2016, the NVBF 5 Standards Committee therefore finally decided to draw up a set of rules for safety equipment in places of assembly. The DIN SPEC (technical specification) serves as a quick means for the establishment of a technical standard on the market or as a possible preparation for a European standardization project.
The working group, consisting of users, manufacturers, planners and accident insurance companies, makes the draft available for inspection and hopes to receive the necessary comments from the industry.

Journey into Parallel Worlds – Virtual Reality in Art Museum and Theatre @ Immersive Showroom Halle 20
Jun 18 um 16:30 – 17:00

After the initial hype about virtual reality has calmed down, the partly unrealistic expectations have given way to a certain sobriety – which can be assessed positively – that allows an objective view of the future of technology and reveals the forms in which virtual reality will be integrated into our media landscape in the future.

Unlike the smartphone or perhaps augmented reality in the future, virtual reality will not necessarily become an integral technology of our everyday lives, but much more relevant when we want to step out of the usual and everyday into another world. Art, cinema and theatre in their current manifestations offer the possibility of leaving the familiar, and museums and exhibitions are – for the majority of their visitors – not part of everyday life but form artificial spaces of experience, parallel worlds that can be experienced spatially. Through the use of virtual reality, the immersion in these parallel worlds can be increased to an almost complete simulation.

While technology is in its infancy, more and more artists and designers* are making their content and works tangible in Virtual Reality. The technology is not only used as a media design tool, but also becomes an independent artistic medium in its own right. More and more museums are also exploring the possible uses of VR in exhibitions or as supplementary offerings. Each project is still prototypical and each actor is still a pioneer.

D8 Plus electric chain hoist | an all-rounder of a special case @ Safety in action on stage
Jun 19 um 11:30 – 12:00

Although the designations for the rules and regulations of the trade association have changed in recent years, the designation D8 Plus electric chain hoist has been able to assert itself on the market. This is an indicator for the manifold use of these electric chain hoists equipped with an additional brake, which in daily use may only be loaded with half the original specified load capacity.

With the exception of the brakes, the D8 Plus electric chain hoist is thus dimensioned according to the principle of intrinsic safety and the use of the second brake fulfils the requirements of the single fault safety principle. The D8 Plus electric chain hoist can therefore be used to hold loads above persons without secondary securing and is an indispensable component of the daily work above the heads of visitors and employees.

The various application possibilities of the D8 Plus electric chain hoists will be presented live and in colour with a truss joint and the motor control required for the application.

IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES! 
Connecting archival theatre objects to a future audience @ Immersive Showroom Halle 20
Jun 19 um 12:00 – 12:45

Virtual and augmented realities (VR and AR) change our media landscape sustainably. On the occasion of the European cultural heritage year “Sharing Heritage”, we are devoting ourselves to the question of how the accessibility of material “theatre objects” in archives and museums can be improved and which potentials VR and AR can generate in this context. At the centre of our investigations is one of the most important theatrical buildings of the last century – the no longer existing Große Schauspielhaus Berlin (director Max Reinhardt, architect Hans Poelzig, realised in 1919 as a conversion of a market hall, demolished in 1985). Design sketches, architectural drawings, documents, sound documents and other artefacts from the theatre archives are testimony to an eventful past that had to be made visible. In the lecture, three mediation concepts and their prototypical applications will be presented, which open up this pool in different ways and for a broad audience.

How can AR and VR be used to create narrative spaces and make theatre history an experience?

The project ideas were developed within the framework of the international workshop “IM/MATERIAL THEATRE SPACES” under the direction of Prof. Dr. Bri Newesely, Hubert Eckart, Franziska Ritter and Pablo Dornhege, under the patronage of the DTHG (Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft e.V.) within the framework of the project “Theatre Landscape”, sponsored by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media – in the European Cultural Heritage Year “Sharing Heritage”.

Presented projects:
“Sketching Heritage by Mercedes Lozano, Anan Yoon Lee.
“One Show – Ten Perspectives” by Rebecca Eisele, Elena Kunau, Dominique Lauvernier, Lea Schorling
“Dream on” by Jana Rohrsen, Sandra Fox

All projects can be tested live in the Immersive Showroom, Hall 20.

Variable acoustics at the example of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg @ SoundLab
Jun 19 um 12:30 – 13:15

Variable acoustic measures in the form of curtains have been used for decades. In the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, innovative roll banner systems were used to make the large hall acoustically variable. But why do variable acoustic elements have to be installed in a new concert hall that has also gone down in history as one of the most expensive in the world? Shouldn’t a concert hall be acoustically optimally designed on its own? These and other exciting questions on the subject of variable room acoustics will be answered in this lecture.

VALtec – Variable Acoustic Lens – Perfect beam steering also in the high frequency range @ SoundLab
Jun 19 um 13:30 – 14:15

Theatre stages and auditoriums are used variably almost everywhere. For sound technology, this means complex conversions or lower transmission quality. In the last few years, sound lines have gained acceptance in sound reinforcement technology whose vertical dispersion behaviour can be changed with the aid of integrated electronics. Beam steering offers optical, acoustic and handling advantages. For speech reproduction, an arrangement of high-quality broadband chassis with appropriate equalization is sufficient. When reproducing high frequencies, however, the dimensions of the transducers used are in the order of magnitude of the wavelengths to be radiated, which leads to various problems.

Safety First – Basic safety requirement for mechanical equipment using a 2D point hoist system @ Safety in action on stage
Jun 19 um 14:00 – 15:00

The stage as a workplace is characterised by the fact that it is necessary and scenically intended to work under suspended and moving loads. In order not to endanger the health of the actors and employees, various safety functions have proven themselves over time. It is particularly important for all drives to be stopped when several mechanical devices are involved in a movement at the same time. SBS uses a compact 2D airframe to show basic safety functions, their components and mode of operation.

MICE – online sales: Welcome to the Jungle @ EventManufactory
Jun 19 um 15:21 – 15:50

The current uncertainty is great! Distribution-oriented natives of the hotel and location scene now have to defend direct sales because external distribution costs like hyenas eat up large parts of the profit margins. The next vultures are already appearing in the sky. While in the course of the evolution an almost harmonious living together with already established on-line portals developed, the emergence of new investor-driven kind comrades provides for an apparently ever more threatening situation in the MICE jungle. But does it help if Tarzan and Jane climb from liana to liana and warn the inhabitants of the jungle with yodelled “digitalization bashing”? Certainly not!
This lecture is an inventory of the portal world and its users and provides information about the changes and dynamics of recent developments.

Future visions of theatre architecture @ Immersive Showroom Halle 20
Jun 19 um 15:30 – 16:15

The growing need to communicate abstract concepts and complex visions of the future makes the use of virtual and augmented reality as part of communication strategies interesting. As a medium, technology can facilitate access to content and stimulate public discourse. It can be used as a tool to promote the development of new ideas and concepts.

On the occasion of the European cultural heritage year “Sharing Heritage”, we are devoting ourselves to the question of what potentials VR and AR can generate in the theatre context and how this technology can make visions of the future tangible in the course of renovation and reconstruction, and accompany planning and design processes. This was investigated using the example of the Komische Oper, which, like many theatres, will undergo a comprehensive renovation process over the next few years. Three mediation concepts and their prototypical applications were developed, which are presented in the lecture and provide an outlook on future developments.

The project ideas were developed within the framework of the international workshop “Im/material Theatre Spaces” led by Prof. Dr. Bri Newesely, Hubert Eckart, Franziska Ritter and Pablo Dornhege, under the patronage of the DTHG (Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft e.V.) within the framework of the project “Theatre Landscape”, sponsored by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media – in the European Cultural Heritage Year “Sharing Heritage”.

Theatre for guest performers as event locations @ EventManufactory
Jun 19 um 16:21 – 16:37

Not every municipality in Germany has its own theatre. This applies in particular to the small and medium-sized centres, which on the one hand have different types of venues (theatres, town halls, cultural centres, congress centres, etc.), but on the other hand do not operate theatres as “multi-specialty houses” with permanent artistic staff. Theatre guest performances are an alternative in this case.

fire protection dialogue @ Safety in action on stage
Jun 19 um 17:00 – 18:00

Fire protection at events is one of the major tasks for every safety officer. At the Fire Protection Dialogue 2019, the planned IGVW testing of materials in the field of decorative construction will be the focus of the dialogue. The tests according to this procedure serve to determine the behaviour of flammable materials when flamed with a hand burner under defined test conditions. The test method is suitable for assessing the flammability of materials and material combinations in event technology (e.g. in decorative construction) through typical ignition sources such as those found in event technology (e.g. headlights, pyrotechnics). Furthermore, the test result can be used to assess the fire behaviour (contribution to the fire) of the materials.

This test method will therefore also be presented live and in colour on all three days on the Safety in Action stage with real flammability tests.

The considerations are presented professionally and evaluated in the context of the valid building regulations.

zactrack® Auto Follow System From the small theatre stage to the Rock ‘n Roll concert in the open-air stadium. A 3D tracking system for all applications. @ RoundTable 21
Jun 20 um 11:00 – 11:45

Digitalisation has long since found its way into everyday stage life. Hardly any effect device is still operated manually. All have network interfaces and are operated from any control console. Automation is progressing in giant steps. Processes and movements are stored in 3D coordinates and called up according to time code.

3D tracking in stage space will be another great “game changer” in our industry. It’s the logical next step if all elements in the show “know” where they are and can tell the controller where they are. Intelligent effect machines such as moving lights, video projections or sound panning systems deliver the dynamic effect exactly where the actor is.

zactrack® is a 3D radio tracking system for all applications in show business. Whether for the individual actor on the cabaret stage, the Prima Ballerina at the opera or the rock ‘n’ roll star at the open air in front of thousands of fans, the zactrack® system provides precise position data for all of them and controls hundreds of moving lights, dynamic video projections and 3D sound. And all this at the same time!

In this lecture:
– Meet the developers of the successful zactrack® system.
– Testimonials and examples from theatre, opera, musical and rock ‘n’ roll
– Experience the live use of the zactrack system during the lecture.

Leadership in the 21st century: Self-organization as an opportunity for teams in art and technology? @ RoundTable 22
Jun 20 um 11:30 – 12:15

In an increasingly networked, flexible, fast-moving world, the traditional hierarchically rigid structures with their inertia no longer function in theatre companies. In addition to the theatre-typical difficult working hours and poor pay, there are unnecessary organisational problems, friction losses and decision-making backlogs. In this way, even willing employees* are demotivated and leave the theatre or do not even accept the position.
In order to master these new challenges, different leadership concepts and a new corporate culture are needed, away from the omniscient lonely leader towards networked teams whose members assume the extensive leadership responsibility according to their competence.
The core of this new organisational development is self-organisation – at management and team level.
The purpose of this RoundTable is to get to know the basics of agile work, to clear up myths about self-organisation and to stimulate discussion about new, more flexible structures in cooperation.
