We created a temporary mobile theater inside a property of Jochiji, Zen temple in Kitakamakura.

Basic idea of the structure is based on Nangchang-Nangchang (2013); bamboos cut out from a forest nearby the site were shredded into strips and bent to form a curved surface.

In order to make the theater rain proof, we sandwiched waterproofing membrane between two layers of bamboos.
