The south stage is a deconstructed high cube container that supports a 16 x 40’ stage. It scales up the concept of a diorama, or shoebox theater, which many may remember creating in elementary school. This receptacle hosts all kinds of improvisational performers and programs, but can also function as a place to sit down in the shade. The shipping container was originally a bookend to a series of three shipping containers welded together along their lengths. A mirrored version of this, the south stage, is sited on the opposite end of the trail. The deck is built just like a butcher block with short side of laminate flanges of I-joists becoming the stage surface. The container remains raw, but may be primed and painted in the near future.
