• UK’s First “Revolving Theatre”

    A major performance venue, with a revolving auditorium, will be at the heart of regeneration plans for Liverpool’s new creative district.

    The new music and theatre venue will be the UK’s first-ever Stage-Around Theatre, based on the hugely successful performance space in Amsterdam.

    The stunning venue will be part of a multi-million pound programme to attract creative businesses to the Ten Streets district which is forecast to create an estimated 2,500 new jobs over the next decade.

    The vision for the district, which contains a mix of historic dock warehousing and industrial buildings, is for an area where tech companies, digital businesses and creative enterprises can flourish alongside artistic organizations – becoming a truly distinctive, inventive and vibrant new urban district.

    Other key elements include adding new squares and public spaces and making Ten Streets, which covers 125 acres of former dockland between the northern edge of the city centre and the landmark Tobacco warehouse at Stanley Dock, an exemplar neighbourhood for renewable energy.

    Kees Abraham, of Stage Around, explained the unique concept: “We’ll add a new dimension to the UK and the Ten Streets offer with the first ever stunning new Stage Around theatre and music venue in the country. The cutting-edge revolving stage, which originated in the Netherlands and has had break out success in Tokyo, will provide audiences with a genuinely immersive experience built around an international quality performance programme.”

    The next phase of work for Ten Streets will be undertaken by the multi-award winning Paris-based architectural practice AWP whose work includes the 365 acre strategic masterplan for the Paris Central Business District.
