Theater at the Zuoz Globe

A Masterpiece  

"All the world's a stage" is written on the canopy leading to the entrance to the Zuoz Globe, the Zuoz theater near the Lyceum Alpinum.

The famous quote by Shakespeare stands for the philosophy behind the school's acting activities. But let's start from the beginning. Where there used to be an indoor swimming pool, a theater was created in 2010/11, the Zuoz Globe - a project by Gasser, Derungs. They write about it:

"100 spectators, surrounded by Engadin larch wood as a space frame, are a part of the respective production. When the curtain falls, the spectator is still on stage."

And indeed, because the stage is in the middle of it, in the pool of the former indoor swimming pool, and the audience sits in a semicircle elevated in front of it. With this special theater space, the Zuoz Globe continues the theater tradition of the Engadin village of Zuoz and the Lyceum Alpinum. The school has two acting ensembles that regularly capture the hearts of the audience. Under the direction of Ivo Bärtsch, the Shakespeare Drama Ensemble is dedicated to the works of Shakespeare, while the English Theatre Company tackles great classics of English literature.

The Zuoz Globe is a masterpiece of architectural nature, what is performed is top class.
