Created by Franco Dragone
The lantern shaped theater which houses the show has forever changed the landscape of urban Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province. Inspired by the lines of the original "red lanterns", the theater was designed by the world famous architect Mark Fisher, and his team at Stufish, the studio he founded in 1994.
The imposing building, over 70 meters high and 100 meters in diameter, offers walkers and spectators a real show outside with the ballet of lights illuminating its facade each evening.
The Han Show is Franco Dragon’s most advanced attempt to enchant audiences by combining unprecedented technological innovations and exceptional artistic performances. Giant screens manipulated by gigantic robot arms transform to reveal one thousand and one surprises subjugating the 2000 spectators inside theatre.
