As Kano is a Muslim city we had a very specific brief concerning the way in which women and men interact with each other in a cinema environment. We separated the seating areas in each auditoria, and we did that by coding the colours and creating almost like a ‘parting of the red sea’ scenario with the aisle in the middle. For the same reason we created a less sombre experience in the foyer so that everybody could be seen, and to encourage self-policing in line with religious requirements.
