Street Theatre made with Bamboo 西貢天后廟戲棚

This one is an old sketch.  It was sketched at the Sai Kung Town Centre where the Tin Hau Temple (Sea Goddess Temple) is. At the time I did this sketch, a group of skilled bamboo scaffolding workers were busy constructing a huge street theatre using mainly bamboos as structural support. Every year, such theatre will be erected for a week and cantonese opera will play for several days, entertaining both the local public, the goddess of the sea and the spirits as well.   

A photoshop version based on the live sketch.
