Small enclosed workshops grouped around an open-air space in a square layout. The theatre is built using indigenous materials and techniques in the form of traditional Hausa hut structures.
A domed mud-walled square room, or soro, anchors the south end of the facility and serves as the theatre entrance. A second soro, at the opposite end of the compound, houses back-stage functions. Both of these square volumes are detailed with traditional bas-relief ornamentation.1
