THEATERMASCHINE ATTACHES A LIGHTER OR SENSITIVE STRUCTURE TO A MASSIVE CARRIER.
THEATERMASCHINES ARE USUALLY HEAVIER, FIRMER AND MORE VIBRATION RESISTANT THAN THE COMPONENTS TO BE FIXED ON OR UPON THEM.
THEY SHOULD PROVIDE SECURITY AGAINST GROUND SEEPAGE WHICH THEY ARE MEASURED FOR.
THEATERMASCHINES APPLY AS AN INTERFACE BETWEEN DIFFERENT FUNCTIONAL AND STRUCTURAL AREAS.
OFTEN, THEY FULFIL BOTH THE FUNCTIONAL CRITERIA OF THE SUPPORTING AND THE FIXED STRUCTURE.
SPECIAL FORMS SERVE DISCONNECTION OR SEPARATION OF STRUCTURES (E.G. ELASTIC FOUNDATIONS OR ACTIVE SUPPLEMENTS).
THEATERMASCHINES MAY ALSO BE PART OF A LARGER STRUCTURE THAT WILL BE FOUNDED AGAIN.
Theatermaschine is the yearly exhibition of students' works of the Institute of Applied Theatre Studies (JLU Gießen) which presents current works all over Gießen such as performances, installations, stage plays, workshops, concerts, critic talks and lectures.
This year's Theatermaschine constitutes a metaphorical construction side from the 30th of May until the 3rd of June. This (non-) space unfolds in the constant act of becoming and evolving whereby the newly constructed changes constantly and might never be considered concluded.
