Application led December 24,1921. Serial No. 524,635.
To all whom t may comm: f
Be it known that I, MAX HAsArr, a citizen of Germany, residing at Furstenstrasse 1, Dresden, Germany, have invented certain l new and useful Improvements in or Relating to Rotary Stages, of which the following is a specification.
As is well known, the usual rotary stages soeneries is greater or if the scenery oom` prises a more extensive landscape, particularly such one represented by a rounded back-scene, or a room occupying the whole stage. In orderto effect a rapid change of scenery also in such cases so-calledfdisplaceable stages or stage carriages have been roposed instead of the rotary stages, eac of said stage carriages supporting a single com-` plete scenery and adapted to be exchanged for another stage carriage by being displaced sideways. Also in this case, however, the number of sceneries mounted simultaneously is limited by the local circumstances of the stage house which is capable Aof containing only a minor number of stage carriages.
The object of this invention is to preventv the abovenamed inconveniences by making the rotary stage displaceable sideways thus rendering it capable of being exchanged for another similar rotary stage or nonrotary stage part. By this the number ot sceneries mounted simultaneously will'be multiplied,
because of each rotary stage supporting several sceneries, and besides a room mounted in front of the scene-opening can be rapidly removed by displacing the rotary stage and inserting instead thereof a stage part sup porting an extensive landscape or another greater room. t f
According to the invention the rotary stage may be displaced horizontally or vertically or in both directions successively.
The horizontal movement may be effected by mounting the rotary stage in a` stage car-y riage adapted to be moved from the main stage to a side stage or a rear stage.y To
effect the vertical movement the rrotary,
stage may be connected with a hoisting a plianceby means of which the stage may ige raised and lowered.y To effectk the double movement'the carriage` supporting the rotary stage is lowered by the aid of an elevator into the space below the main stage and moved sideways in any direction.
The opening in the main stage caused by the displacement of the rotary stage may be closed by another similar rotary stage, a
stage carriage, a stage part movable side- Y ways or stage parts movable up and down yand consisting of one or more portions independent of one another. On said stage carriages, stage parts etc. the stationary and lnovable sceneries representing rextensive landscapes,'large rooms and thelike are suitably mounted. l
It has also been proposedin order to effeet a rapid change of scenery, to dispose in the theatre several rotary stages supporting stationary and movable sceneries etc.l and each representingr a scene. Such rotary stages are movable sideways and backwards in order to allow variation of the size of the scene. Between such rotary stages of course a considerable part of the main stage has to remain unoccupied, and if sceneries should be placed on this part of the stage theyy would not move upon changing the scene by rotating the rotary stages. On account thereof hindering restrictions in the scene arrangement will be caused. `The rotary stage constructed according to the present invention di'ers from such rotary stages in that it-consists of a single plate occupying about the whole stage, allowing a quite unrestricted arrangement of the sceneries, because otvall the objects placed on the stage moving upon the rotation of the same.
-In the annexed drawings one form of embodiment of the invention is diagrammati cally shown.
scenium opening` and Fig. the line @-7) of Fig. 3.
The system according to the invention .is shown in Fig. l. The carriage it is located at the proscenium opening 'l in the central comp rtment oit the stage, the carriage B in the right hand compartment or side stage` li. and the carriage G in the lett hand side stage F. while no carriage occupies the bacl; stage D.. It now a scene shitting be desired.` the carriage A is moved into the bach stage DI, and the carriage B is moved out ot the side stage E to the compartment D. It a turther scene shifting be desired. the carriage B is moved back into the right hand side stage E. and the carriage C is moved to the compartment 'D at the proscenium opening l. A. rotary stage may be arranged within each carriage7 said stage consisting ot a drum-shaped body 2, Fig. running by means of rollers 3 on a circular 'ail et. The drinn-shapedbody 2 carries a circular plat- Ytorni H rotating with the body Q. The said rotary stage is located within a carriage cona section along si'sting' ot tour standards 5 ot trameeworl; rigidly connected to one another and carrying by means ot rotary toi-lts T rollers 6 which run on rails 10. The four framework standards 5 torni a. casing carrying at the top the stage tloor G, which located abouty the rotary stage, Fig. 2, said floor G being moved together with the carriage.
l.a shows the rail device on which the ges according to Fig'. l run. At the pointsV circular turn-plates S are lo I'ing short` rail pieces 9, said plates l pieces beingmturned in any conwn'manner accordingY to the dei he carriages the forks 7 with lthe rollersl 6 being turned simultaneously.y said plates heilig adj usted according to Fig. l1 tor moving the carriage A into the back stage D1.
The carriages may also be lowered and then another carriage moved into the space previously occupied by the lowered carriage. To that end a movable support 1l, Fig. 2. is provided consisting of frame-work and sliding by means ot guides 12 on the standards 2i', known li'ttingdevices, such as hydraulic or electric motors, plungers or the like being used. `Placed on the said support ll are f rails 13 and tour turning platesS having short rail pieces 9 constructed in accordance with the turningplates and rails as in Fig. la. In all of the'compartments located at the sides ot the movable support ll and also in the compartments in trontot and at` the back ot' said supportrails lst are arranged providing for moving the carriages in the lower compartment in the same way as is the case in the level of the stage floor.
'It the support ll'be lowered, as shown in the lower parts of'Figs. 2 and 3, the rails l() at the stage floorinust again be connected.
To that end the rails l0*` Fig. tor running backward and 'torwa rd are connected to blocks l5 carried by supports 'lt rotatably mounted in bearings 17 and moved and held in position by curved raclts 1S meshing with gea r wheels having cranks if). It the cranks be turned. the supports lt with the rails ltr will be moved to the position it) shown by dotted lines.
The tore and rear rails ltl). Figs. 'ind 3. with Vthe turning plates S" are also placed on supports't recnred to levers :22, which are liournalled in bearings 4 23 and held by curved racha fil meshing with gear wheels having cranks In turning the cranlis i the h've f2 will be lowered to the position Qt shown by dotted lilies. It the snpport ll .is to bemovcd upwards to the rail device lll, the rails 10 are swung towards the sides and the rails ltl) upwards. whereby thc'rail device tor moving the carriages in the level ot the stage floor again restored.
All carriages may be constructed similar to the carriage G. However, carriages may be built.' which have no rotary stages. let is apparent troni the drawing that a great number ot carriages with or without rotary stages may be used facilitating all sceneries belonging to a performance to bey erected `lfet'ore the commencenrent ot said performance. The scene shitting is obtained by ni'iving the carriages as described it beine' noted that` three or tour sceneries may be erected on ea'ch rotary staar. which are bron ht in front ot the ln'f/seenium opening' by turning the rotary stage.
F devices singiilar to tat shown in Fig. lf" moving the carriages in the level ot the itage floor may he arranged-also in the lower compartment and above the stage floor.
Several floors may be erected in the lower compartiment. in which the carriages .may be moved, and to that end the movable .support may only be capable o!E moving unto thelowermost floor.
VVThat l claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent oit the United States is 2e l. A stage system comprising rotary stages, means Vl'or moving said stages ver tically into compartments situated above :and belowthe normal stage Hoor, and means 'tor moving the said in a direction parallel to the stage opening and at' right` angles thereto in each of said compartnients.
stage s) :tem romprisiijlg rotary stages 'arranged on carriages. means tor moving said stages'vertically into compart,
ments situated above and below the normal starre floor, and means for moving the said s in a `direction parallel to the stage opening and at right angles thereto in each o" said compartments.
3, A stage system comprising rotary llt) stages arranged into carriages, means fork stages in a direction parallel to the stage opening and at right angles thereto in each of said compartments.
In testimony whereof I affix my signatur in presence of two witnesses.
