New World Development (NWD) announced the conservation project of the State Theatre, a Grade I historic building, two years ago. And as a continuation of its mission, as well as to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the State Theatre this year, NWD has just unveiled the new State Theatre logo, as inspired by artefacts collected by its conservation team. The new retro logo also pays homage to its iconic parabolic exoskeleton truss in the roof, while offering a sneak preview of the rebirth of this new cultural landmark.
Coinciding with the logo reveal, NWD has also announced a series of immersive theatre dinner soirees titled “DreamState” at the Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant yè shanghai in K11 Musea, another cultural landmark in Hong Kong. Featuring themed performances that reinterpret classics from the 50s to 80s, “DreamState” is set to take residents and cultural figures associated with the theatre on a visual, auditory, and flavourful journey to rediscover Hong Kong’s and the State Theatre’s classic moments.
The special “DreamState” menu will be available for pre-booking from now until the end of December. Details will be revealed on the website and social media platforms of yè shanghai. The retro State Theatre neon sign at the entrance of the restaurant will be on until the end of this month, allowing the public to reminisce about the olden days of the State Theatre.
