"Space is the Place" ― Sun Ra

*

The Greenbridge Space is a DIY performance & hosting space in Trikala, central Greece.

Our intention is to support new artists, committed amateurs, anyone who wants to perform in front of an audience and has not had the opportunity to do so.

We are open to hosting one-off gigs, or short residencies.

Specs

- The main stage area is approximately 40m2 [Length * Width * Height = 12 * 3.5 * 2.7].

- There is no physical stage; the area covered by the yellow carpet in the picture functions as a stage. This area is directly under a 2.5m2 rectangular opening connecting the ground floor and the first floor. Here is a walkthrough video of the entire space.

- We have a portable PA system with an embedded 4-channel mixer, a pair of dynamic microphones, a MacBook Pro running Ubuntu with Logitech Z-5 speakers, and a cassette radio player. We also have a 50-year old Hoffman piano, a trombone, a trumpet, a harmonica, an old-school music keyboard, a duduk, an acoustic guitar, a didgeridoo, a darbuka and a melodica, all of which you can use.

- We have a pair of PAR lights above the main stage, with several colour filters to choose from, as well as LED lights behind all walls of the Space and the ceiling. There's also an Andowl Q-A17 mini projector at your disposal.

- The audience is seated at the stairs, the sofas, and several stools which are scattered throughout the ground floor space. There is an additional 20m2 area for the audience upstairs, which has clear visibility of the performance space.

- The Space is free to use. All performances @ Greenbridge are held on a donation basis, and all contributions from the audience are given to the performer(s) as a minimum token of appreciation for their effort.

There is also a kitchenette at the guests' disposal, a bathroom with shower and hot water, and a 24 Mbps ADSL Internet connection. We have bedding, blankets & towels.
