This project presents the construction of a concert stage and relates with the production factors of a rock concert, which takes place in the Panthessaliko stadium of Volos.
The stage of this concert is a portable construction composed of elements which are being transported in the stadium in order to be assembled for the erection of the stage. These elements are being detached with a reverse process when the concert ends.
The idea of the creation of this stage came from the correlation of a rock concert with the Rolling Stones with the structure and the qualitative characteristics of the flipper game. The playfield of the flipper, just as the stage, constitutes a background of fixed and mobile elements related with lights and sounds where the ball is moving, like the group, and specially like Mick Jagger, in the environment of the stage. In this reference in which the public is considered as the player of the game, exists a common basis and that is the interaction between the player and the ball and the public and the group.
The stage with the backstage are located in the northern part of the stadium and cover the region of the small side of it, from the one edge of the tiers to the other. Main elements of the stage settings are a central platform and two smaller, which one of them is placed among the public, a system of scaffoldings that is the backdrop of the basic stage, a construction that functions as surface for video projections and that is being formed during the concert, a basic corridor that runs through the central platform and four frames of square trusses, two of which move mechanically. The special equipment that is required for the rock concert which is related with the sound, the lighting and the projections video, is applied on those basic elements of the platform.
