Dendro Theatre for the City of Adelaide Parklands
A Dendro Theatre is an outdoor public performance and meeting space that is formed by the land’s topography and living plant material. In essence a Dendro Theatre is an afforested amphitheatre where the plantings and landform are designed to provide the necessary infrastructure of a theatre but with the natural features and ambience of a park setting.
A concept proposal was submitted to the Adelaide City Council in May 1994. Meetings were held but the proposal did not proceed.
There continues to be in Adelaide, as elsewhere, a considerable economic and ecological cost to set up the infrastructure for outdoor concerts and events. A Dendro Theatre would reduce these costs considerably as well as providing enhanced amenity.
