The National Theatre Kursaal in Melilla


 

 
The new Kursaal is revealed to be a real gem, with details such as paneling on all the wall stand floor of their stalls and stage to ensure the perfect sound. Also equipped with a Acoustic Shell specially tailors its concert stage.

This concert chamber includes 6 towers and 4 ceilings (3covering the camera and1the proscenium) with which the stage house is closed acoustically and aesthetically. The top face of the camera is finished with varnished oak matt fireproof. The rear face is finished with matte black fireproof. Furthermore, any variations can be designed at customer´s request like making it of any finish that is on the market.

Thanks to the modular conception of the camera, with few elements of large projecting surface, the assembly and disassembly of the same can be done with few personnel, within a short time.

The towers have 8 meters height and a wingspan of 3, 2 and 4 meters, with spread wings. When folded, the wingspan is reduced to just one, two meter. The towers are counter balanced and equipped with leveling system which allows the plumbing and aligning with contiguous towers during the assembly of the camera.

These towers stand out for their low storage space thanks to its design. When removing the lower skirt of wood, tongue and groove of towers are permitted, so it occupies minimal space to avoid jeopardizing the stage box for other performances or activities.

Each ceiling is suspended from some hanging lines, which minimizes the number of bars held by Acoustic Shells. The hanging point is adjustable, enabling its modification, by adjusting the ceiling´s angle for the acoustic and visual optimization. The ceilings can be taken down on the floor to displace them by retractable rolling systems and kept up right in chácena (backstage) or tied as required. In this way are able to release large part of the stage allowing the use of punctual linkages and motors whenever necessary.

To minimize the space occupied by the ceiling´s engines and motors, they are stored in pairs since they are designed so, hanging one ceiling on its partner.
