HAN SHOW

A thrilling celebration of traditional Han culture explored by the most innovative technology

2012-2014 | China

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.
