Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The field of study in this paper concerns how users of The Royal Danish Theatre at King’s New Square in Copenhagen experiences going to the theatre, when there is a metro construction site at the old sqaure. The answer to this is achieved through analysing the users experiences of the theatre and the square during the construc- tion. The study of the square is made through Henri Lefebvre’s theory on The Spatial Triad. The analysis of the users experience is made through Richard Schechners model, the gathering-performing- dispersing phases, and through both expert and focus group inter- views, to understand how the users experience the effects of the construction site. The study concludes that for a square like King’s New Square to succeed in the experience of the Danish Royal Theatre's guests, The Spatial Triad need to be in balance, as well as the dispersing phase has to be extended, so the guests can process what they have seen. The best way to do this is for the Royal Danish Theatre to create a small square similar to King’s New Square as it was before the construction site to extend the dispersing phase, as Schechner recommends. Thus the guests can use this square while dispersing and in any possible way be kept from the construction site, which results in an extended feeling of being in an enchanted world.
