Beginner, Advanced, and Contemporary Ballet classes. At UP
Art space, contemporary dance stage, live music venue, audiovisual studio. Home of the fuzzy mind and the experimentally inclined psyche. And Die Wolke Art Group’s headquarters.
Inside the 130 sq.m. space one finds a theatrical stage with an arsenal of audiovisual technology supporting it, an electronics lab, an editing/color grading/VFX workstation, sound and lights, a 5m projection screen, cameras, and a host of sensor and controller apparatus. Also a small number of people that are adept at utilising the aforementioned implements to creative effect. Vitruvian Thing is intended to host all kinds of experimental activities, collaborations, and educational events: dancetheatre performances, live music, film projections, installations, theatre, talks, exhibitions.
Events at Vitruvian Thing are invariably underscored by our philosophy of artistic and presentational quality. The venue, as well as its managing group Die Wolke, is a non-profit endeavour (Die Wolke is a registered non-profit company).
Vitruvian Thing seats around 50 people in four rows. Most shows have multiple times/dates, so reservations are essential. We make it a point to start on time, to break the vicious circle of showtime delays that encourage belated arrivals and so on. We recommed that you subscribe to our mailing list to stay informed. We will never abuse your email address!
We are always looking for interesting performances to host, that meet our mission statement: high quality, forward thinking art; experimental, innovative ideas by contemporary artists; cross-disciplinary, intermedial technique; including, but certainly not limited to, dancetheatre, contemporary experimental/electroacoustic music, performance art, movie screenings, and more.
The stage is about 40m² of black, antivibrational, with computer-controlled lighting, wide projection area, sound system, 5m screen, etc. For further info and applications, fill the form.
Online concerts, theatre and dance performances, workshops and seminars: we support must types of events. Use Vitruvian Thing’s stage with full sound and lights equipment, rehearse the live direction, and produce a professional event online. Offer access with a ticket, or for free.
The space is bookable as a studio for seminars, workshops, rehearsals, video shooting sessions, general-purpose experimentalism, or any other purpose, with or without staff.
We also host Occam’s Sharpener, the post-production unit responsible for the visual effects in Imago, as well as various other visual media and programming projects.
UP is our new rehearsal space. With around 90m² of 100% support antivibrational floor, UP is a flexible room that is particularly suitable for dance and theatre lessons, rehearsals, workshops, etc. An open, well-lit space, with clean, uncluttered aesthetics, lots of natural light, acoustic control.
UP is available to book by the hour, while special deals for recurring events are available. Contact us for booking info.
At Vitruvian Thing, we acknowledge the difficult financial circumstances of this period. So, unless otherwise noted, admittance to the events we host entails an unspecified amount: you decide how much the ticket should be and, in doing so, you are supporting the artists and helping Die Wolke keep the venue running. At the entrance, we issue donation coupons to acknowledge your contribution, equivalent to receipts, as required by law.
So, upon arrival at Vitruvian Thing and checking in at the welcome desk, you can choose your own price of admission: literally as much as you think is just right for you. You receive your coupon, and enjoy the show.
Some events, though, especially festivals or acts coming from outside Thessaloniki, might entail a specific ticket. These will be clearly noted, and presale will be offered, instead of reservations.
