It was the project we picked out from Clerkenwell Design Week right back at the initial press briefing and now we can show you Aberrant Architecture’s Small Coal-Man’s Tiny Travelling Theatre in all its glory.
Inspired by the unlikely story of Thomas Britton’s 17th Century theatre space which entertained small London crowds with acts ranging from first-time enthusiasts to Handel (yes that one), Aberrant reimagined Britton’s space for the 21st Century. A boat handle opens the stage door and a coal scuttle roof filters light into the auditorium which could seat only a couple of audience members, but the eye-catching red colour gave it a modern twist. Passers-by could get a flavour of proceedings through a large sound funnel and the exterior walls doubled up as a refreshment space.
