De Warande

Renovation Cultural hub De Warande

Cultural hub De Warande is being renovated. The stage is too small and the stage tower too low. The flying installation is by means of counterweights and lighting is limited.

Behind the fire curtain the whole stage tower is being dealt with: a larger stage, side stages, a higher tower and an expanded and fully automated power flying is installed.

Behind the round stage tower a new service building will house a good get-in, a workshop, storage, dressing rooms and a green room with daylight and a view.

The auditorium will get a new seating plan with new seats.

The total budget for this renovation is 10 million euro. Budget for stage machinery is 2.5 M.
