Bamboo Theatre in Kowloon

After its popular debut in 2012, the West Kowloon Bamboo Theatre had its second run just a week ago. While the Cantonese opera shows had been the main attractions, there has been as well a parade of different other events including Cantonese opera performances by young talents, Chinese dance by the Hong Kong Dance Company, contemporary music concerts, and a Bamboo Theatre Fair. This colorful New Year Fair was held at the future site of the Xiqu Centre.

The Concept Designer of the bamboo theatre and the surrounding space is William Lim who took his inspiration from traditional theatres of the 1950s.

The long-anticipated Xiqu Centre design model had been unveiled for the first time directly at its future home. The Xiqu Centre want’s to become one of the signature venues in the West Kowloon Cultural District("WKCD").
