The concept is Culture-tainer (Culture+Container), meaning that it contains culture and artistic creation. We have planned transformable stage to enable diverse genres to perform within the space. With its module system, it can be redirected according to purpose of performances. The location of the seats can also be re-arranged.

To express its concept metaphorically with emotional values, we tried to push the limits of material usage beyond our imagination while maintaining the shape of container. Common area and walls in theatre are filled with light permeating through F.R.P. with simple and repetitive lines. The volume of light gives silent resonance. The lighting container box is hard but soft, bright yet dark.
