- UFFO is a unique multifunctional cultural space built with an innovative architectural approach and technical specifications that reflect the current creative trends. Fully accessible, the place’s design allows for variable layouts to accommodate a wide range of events—social events, large-scale conferences, exhibitions, lectures, educational workshops, business presentations as well as sports events. Nevertheless, in the first place UFFO is a theatre and a space for cultural events and the arts.
- UFFO houses a hall (848 m2), a mirror hall (139 m2), and two coffee shops (each 103 m2). There is also a gallery, with a glass façade offering exposure to the public space outside, used mainly for presentations of contemporary visual arts and multidisciplinary art projects. Because of UFFO’s multifunctional design, the main hall could be set up in five basic layouts—for theatre, concert, as an arena, a dance hall, and for a large-scale conference.
- Technical equipment: sound system L-Acoustics including speakers and accessories (rigging to hang speakers), digital mixing console DiGiCo, top-quality wireless microphones Shure including a wide range of accessories. Lighting equipment: 120 dimmers, over 140 conventional lights, intelligent moving heads, and ChamSys and MA Lighting consoles. Projecting equipment includes Sanyo and Acer projectors with capacity up to 10,000 ANSI and projection screens (up to 600 x 450 cm). The ceiling construction contains many rigging points that could be used for performances and 26 mobile motors with capacity up to 250 kg. There are other mobile motors available, with capacity 500 kg and certification D8+. In addition, there is a floor system—Tuchler HANDY stage platforms—with standard components (2 x 1 m) as well as atypical units, and a cushioned dance floor (black, gray, white). By prior arrangement, other sound system, more intelligent lights, truss constructions, and floor units could be provided. A new immersive sound system is planned to be acquired in the near future, including surround and delay speakers and another sound mixer.
- Each artist residency is approached on individual basis, as different companies—American, French, Czech—have different requirements. There is an option to arrange for meal and board, however it is subject to an agreement for a particular coproduction. Nevertheless, the mere provision of space and technical support, which includes the current top sound, lighting and other equipment, and depends on a particular coproduction agreement (yet, it is usually always included), will guarantee any company more benefits than at most other theatres or artist residency programmes. Parking is available in UFFO underground garage; trucks can be parked behind the UFFO building.
