The National Taichung Theater (NTT), the first national-level performing arts center in central Taiwan, will celebrate its grand opening on September 30, 2016.
Designed by the Pritzker Prize winning architect Toyo Ito and hailed by the media as one of the world’s nine new landmarks, it houses three world-class theaters: a 2007-seat Grand Theater, an 800-seat Playhouse and a 200-seat Black Box. The architecture, which is supported solely by curved walls and no pillars, exemplifies NTT’s endeavor: to engage and connect, to embrace the flow of ideas, and be unafraid to defy the norm.
With plans in place to host annual arts festivals, create local arts programs, and participate in international collaborations, the National Taichung Theater aspires to allow imagination soar, and let the appreciation of art become a way of life.
The Opening Season presents 60 performances with more than 30 companies from 10 countries, including opera, drama, dance, music, Chinese opera, and international co-production shows, to celebrate the power of live performance. If you are interested, please find more information here.
