VINTAGE CAROUSEL FEST, april 2014 shanghai
KTGA produced the first immersive cultural Festival in Shanghai involving crafts, art, performances, lectures and a theatrical environment. The venue inspired the main theme, a Vintage CAROUSEL Fest. The event space is a 1920s Shintou temple converted into a theatre/event space in Hongkou district, Shanghai. All the space looks into the stage in the middle and the velvet red curtains and red and white seats give the space a very circusy and mysterious feel.
Our theme involved Carousel Horses, Circus acts, Magic performers and Gypsy Music. Bazaar sellers where mostly Vintage this time matching perfectly well with the environment.
Lights flash! Vibrant colors spin round and round! Calliope music fills the air! The carousel! The symbol of country fairs and carnivals of old, takes center stage at Kick the Gong Around's next great event.
