Public life around Lake Garda is primarily happening during the warm season, from Easter till October. Flooded by enormous waves of tourists, the picturesque villages, but mostly the lakes flora and fauna get to their limits of resilience. A rich culturaland culinary open-air-offer satisfies any tourists` wishes. Afterwards calmness comes back. Hotels and camping-complexes close their doors, as well as shops and gastronomic facilities. Lakefront villages fall into a deep hibernation. Meanwhile the lake regenerates. Out of the gloom of this silent, yet abandoned season, the longings for a social hub becomes even louder. The idea of a house for performances arises out of the desire from the local residents of Riva del Garda and surroundings to create a adaptable and free useable venue for their active and lively music- and theatre scene. The scene takes place at the marina di San Nicolo in Riva del Garda, on the northern lakefront. At the point where a silent contemporary witness stashes memories away from the past, the Monte Brione runs out into the rough water and sailboats are anchoring, the new stage as the counterpart of the old fortress emerges. The common centre is formed by the marina. In reminiscence to the past - charged by new stimuli - the future is able to unfold.
