Towering Bamboo Theater
For a few weeks out of every year, the residents of Ap Lei Chau build a towering bamboo theater. Ap Lei Chau is part of Hong Kong, and is one of the world’s most crowded islands. A thousand people can cram into this gigantic bamboo theater built in southern Hong Kong. The reason for the theater being built every year? It’s to perform Chinese opera, specifically an opera meant to celebrate the birthday of Hung Shing. Hung Shing is the god of the Southern sea and he is still revered in this once great fishing isle.
