National Taichung Theater Grand Opening 2016.9.30
A Theater for Arts and New Lifestyle
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.
To celebrate the grand opening of National Taichung Theater, OISTAT Headquarters cooperated with NTT to organize the first International Forum A Theater for Arts and New Lifestyle which invites prominent speakers from Taiwan, UK, Spain, Belgium and France to engage in a conversation elaborated from their experiences across regions, in which thoughts and perspectives on today's cultural and creative industries will be shared.
