Eskew+Dumez+Ripple recently completed the design of a new multi-venue performing arts theatre in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The project includes a new 1,200 seat theatre designed to support a variety of live music, dance and theatrical performances with multiple theatre seating arrangements that include proscenium, thrust, and surround stage configurations. In addition, the theatre can be configured to provide an open, flat-floor room with up to 8,400 square feet (780 square meters) of usable space to support fashion shows, corporate functions and hospitality events.
In addition to the primary theater space, the project includes a 300-seat, flat-floor cabaret theatre that supports more intimate musical performances along with lectures, symposia, hospitality and corporate events. Located above the primary theater volume, the space is designed with an expansive window wall located immediately behind the stage, providing spectacular city views of Sao Paulo as a backdrop to performances and special events.Location: São Paulo, Brazil
