Text from Originen
On new year 2016 Origen's director Giovanni Netzer announced together with renowned representatives of politics, economics and culture Origen's new theatre project. A temporal theatre shall be built on top of the Julier pass. This theatre will dedicate itself to the world theatre, it will act with the seasons and reinterpret the mountain pass as a place of culture.
PLACE OF CULTURE
The Julier pass has an eventful architectural history. The romans built a temple of Jupiter on top of the pass. A chepel for Sebastian is attested in the middle ages and in the modern era hospices and defence constructions have been built on the mountain pass.
SYMBOL OF THE UNITY OF NATURE AND CULTURE
The Juliertheatre wil combine nature and culture in a unique way. Far away from all hermetically sealed theatre buildings in the cities a building opens up to the direct influence of nature. The Julier tower is a delicate wood construction and has a transparent effect due to its many openings. the upper platform can be used as a function room or as a foyer. The spectator terraces embrace the central stage and direct the view of the audience again and agin outside to the vastness of the landscape.
