The Sundukyan State Academic Theatre will have the second stage that for the black box experimental theater to be launched form February 15. As Panorama.am leant from Theatre Director Vardan Mkrtchyan the new modern stage will open in an adjacent building of the theatre that has been completely reconstructed in line with modern standards.
“This huge theatre cannot have simply one stage as it will ultimately lead to stagnation, while small theatre stages may serve as practice spaces for experiments, new ideas and prospects,” Mkrtchyan said.
Referring to the specifics of the black box theatre, Mkrtchyan noted that the staging director himself decides the number of spectators and the setup at a performance. In the words, the new space of the Sundukyan theatre is designed to accommodate around 150-200 people. To note, one feature of the black box theatre is that in the case of experimental performances, unusual arrangements of seating and stage can be offered.
