The Pianodrome is the world’s first 100-seater amphitheatre constructed entirely from pianos.
A unique playable community sculpture, and radical re-imagining of the piano in today’s throw away culture, the Pianodrome functions as an accessible setting for performance, education and participation. From community builds to live performances and a piano re-housing scheme, we have welcomed volunteers, won awards, supported musicians of all ages and championed up-cycling.
Built in Summer 2018, we premiered at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, opening in time for the month-long Edinburgh Fringe festival. We’ve hosted over 20,000 visitors since, with appearances in a warehouse and a month-long residency in the Leith Theatre. Now we’re looking for a permanent home, where we can continue to invite the public in to experience the resonance of this achitectural delight, as well as host extraordinary in-the-round performances of all colours and persuasions.
