Roundhouse joins other ‘round’ arts venues to stage new Lepage work
The distinctive shape of the Roundhouse has helped it to gain membership to an international network of round arts buildings – with a series of specially commissioned arts projects set to be staged there.
The building in Chalk Farm is a member of the 360� group, which includes 13 venues in Sweden, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy and the Netherlands.
Other venues on the list include La Com�te (Le Cirque) in Ch�lons-en-Champagne, France, and La Tohu, in Canada.
They showcase arts projects designed specifically with their circular architecture in mind.
The first project, Cartes, a new show by internationally acclaimed director Robert Lepage, will come to the Roundhouse in February next year.

Marcus Davey, Roundhouse chief executive, said: “We are very excited about this partnership with the other round venues in the world.
“It is as much about the Roundhouse learning from the world as it is about showing them our work.”

Initially built for steam train storage, the Grade II listed Roundhouse was also a gin warehouse before being turned into a liberal arts centre in the 1960s. It underwent a major refurbishment in 2006.
