Small Coal Man's Tiny Travelling TheatreEdit profile
british design firm aberrant architecture has developed 'tiny travelling theatre'. the brilliantly red structure was formed from aberrant architecture's 21st century re-conceptualization of traveling coal salesman thomas britton's 1678 mini-entertainment building for london. 'tiny traveling theater' has been constructed in a manner very similar to its previous incarnation-- a large sound funnel distributes musical entertainment occurring on the inside to gathered crowds around the exterior of the miniature auditorium. in the time of britton's structure, amateur performers to symphony stars such as george frideric handel were said to serenade small crowds while hidden away from view.
aberrant architecture's traveling theater is equipped with a silver boat handle stage door which seals the small musical ensemble and viewers into the tiny performance space. the room is illuminated by a system of circular openings cut from the roof and decorated by coal scuttles stacked around each skylight. due to the limited interior space of the structure, only a very small audience may witness the performances from an inside perspective being with the musicians of portable theater, providing the listener with a particularly intimate concert-going experience. for those experiencing 'tiny travelling theatre' performances from the exterior, the architects have also fashioned a chain-lowered table for a relaxed caf-like environment.
