The Project

NAUTILUS is an extraordinary story for a KONSTRUKT of a new public stage at the riverbank in the centre of Skopje. A stage to host theatre plays, music performances, and public gatherings of any kind – above all a place for independent culture. NAUTILUS KONSTRUKT is an international, collaborative, and activist project which echoes the zeitgeist of the post-earthquake Skopje (1963) – an open, cosmopolitan and progressive city. The stage stands in stark contrast to the recent remaking of the city by a large governmental project called ‘Skopje 2014’ and is a beacon for free artistic expression which embodies the active citizen. NAUTILUS KONSTRUKT was built by a group of students, architects, citizens, craftsmen and artists in a period of three weeks in July 2015 in Skopje. The project was organized by the NGO City Creative Network (CCN) Skopje, and TEN Zurich.
