Broadway Malyan reveals new Chinese theatre plans

  • Comment

[First look] Broadway Malyan has unveiled its plans for the new Kanas Lake Performance Theatre - the practice’s first auditorium project in China

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Xinjiang province of north-west China, the multi-purpose,1,200-seat theatre has been drawn up for the Provincial government.

According to the practice the design draws ‘on powerful yet simple forms, with the theatre auditorium enclosed within two protective wings wrapping the shell as if protected within clasped hands [and] … evoking the dynamic movement of traditional Chinese ribbon dance.’

Broadway Malyan has now delivered the design package to the local design institute and will continue to monitor the detail design and site build.

Practice director Peter Vaughan said: ‘We have a broad project portfolio in the cultural and leisure sector. However, this is our first theatre project in China and it reflects our ever-increasing portfolio of high-profile, international projects, across all sectors.

‘[We now] earn just over half our fees outside of the UK and Europe.’
