An interdisciplinary team directed by the Emeritus professor from the Department of Spanish Philology of the Universitat de València Joan Oleza has carried out a virtual reconstruction of the ‘Casa de Comèdies de L’Olivera’ (1618-1750), a building exclusively meant to the theatre performances, with capacity for 1800 people, located in the current Comèdies Street in València.
The research and reconstruction team is constituted by Joan Oleza, Jaume Segura, Sebastià Mirasol, Mario Montagud, Ana Planells, Elena de Oleza and Francisco Pomares.
The reconstruction apart from counting with the graphic modelling of the architecture of the building, has added other sensory dimensions such as sound, with the aim to achieve an acoustic simulation characteristic of the crafted space. With this objective, they have created, according to Oleza’s team, ‘representation of some fragments of Lope de Vega’s works, that is why we have obtained a immersive experience in the visit of the ‘Casa de Comèdies’, since the sound resonates as it will do it in the real space.’ This experience can be visited virtually (https://youtu.be/xYRezbBi_3M).
As a result of this research, a didactic documentary has been elaborated (https://youtu.be/aLuLGn9CSac) and gathers the features of ‘la Casa de Comedias de La Olivera’ and represents a route for the theatrical apart from some samples of this representations with fragments of El castigo sin venganza by Lope de Vega.
