DUBAI – A floating theatre in the shape of a sea shell will rise in Sharjah’s east coast exclave of Kalba, it has been revealed.
Sharjah Ruler Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi inspected plans for the theatre, among several projects in Sharjah, this week.
The theatre’s design was inspired by an idea from Sheikh Dr Sultan. The theatre is shaped like a giant clam surrounded by water basins.
“The theatre, with its distinctive and wonderful destination being linked to the corniche, will provide a complete view of the Kalba Corniche and the Arabian Sea,” according to state news agency WAM.
Among Sharjah’s series of sea-inspired projects is the Kalba Heritage Museum, a sail-shaped institution that will be built on the seashore.
In April, Sharjah opened Heritage Mosque Square, which features the restored Saif bin Ghanim Mosque, which is built of coral in keeping with Kalba’s seafaring tradition. ICA/Expat Media
