The concert hall ARK NOVA created by Arata Isozaki and Anish Kapoor is an air-inflated membrane structure which equipped with the necessary stage and sound equipment. The membrane can be folded up and the equipment dismantled and loaded on a truck, so they can be brought to each site. The interior is a single uninterrupted space which, depending on the arrangement of equipment, is a multistage format which can accommodate various events from orchestras to chamber music, jazz, the performing arts or exhibitions. It is envisioned to seat 500 during an orchestra performance, and is planned to have a width of 30m, length of 36m and maximum height of 18m. The next performance dates of ARK NOVA Matsushima are as follows: • 27 September: Workshop project led by Gustavo Dudamel with local children • 28 September: Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra led by Gustavo Gimeno • 29 September: Kabuki performance with Sakata Tojuro • 5/6 October: Jozenji Street Jazz Festival “An Encore Live in Matsushima” • 9/10 October: Programs presented by Classic for Japan Foundation • 11 October: Kyogen performance with Ippei Shigeyama • 12 October: A string sextet performed by members from the Lucerne Festival Orchestra • 13 October: Ryuichi Sakamoto with the Tohoku Youth Orchestra, an ensemble uniquely comprised of local youths for this project
