Stufish Entertainment Architects has completed the design for the bespoke 1,183 seat Dai Show Theatre in Xishuangbanna, China, for the country’s largest property developer, the Dalian Wanda Group. The theatre will host a permanent 75-minute acrobatic water spectacle created by show producers Dragone.
Stufish has also designed the entire stage and set for the show, becoming the first practice ever to deliver all architectural and show elements for a theatre. Designing the entire project allowed Stufish to present a holistic architectural language throughout, from the canopy-inspired roof to purpose-built stage elements.
Propaganda Studio photographer Tim Franco was in Xishuanbanna to document the incredible theater just before the opening. Propaganda Studio provides China based Architecture Photographer for commercial and editorial assignments.
