Mission & Vision


A space cre­ated for the imag­i­na­tion to soar and pur­sue dif­fer­ent means of artis­tic ex­pres­sion in beau­ti­ful en­coun­ters that touch the soul.

We’ve built a the­ater for art and life, like the light, air and water that we can­not live with­out.
— Joyce Chiou, Gen­eral and Artis­tic Di­rec­tor

The NTT is an “Organic Entity”!

We hope the NTT be­comes a part of your life, a place you want to visit even when there are no per­for­mances. Just as ar­chi­tect Toyo Ito has in­jected es­sen­tial el­e­ments of “light, air and water” into the NTT, we want “beauty, music and art” to be es­sen­tial parts of your life.

The stage can be anywhere

Per­for­mances can take place any­where at the NTT—in the lobby with­out pil­lars and beams, in a cav­ernous cor­ner, along the grand spi­ral stair­case, in­side the won­drously evoca­tive But­ter­fly Foyer or the Tutu Gallery. Air flows freely along the NTT’s cur­va­ceous walls, and gor­geous sounds re­ver­ber­ate!

NTT in Our Daily Lives

Apart from open­ing our stages to Tai­wan’s per­form­ing arts groups and tour­ing pro­duc­tions from abroad to pre­sent mas­ter­pieces and new works, we also con­nect with the high-tech in­dus­try em­blem­atic of cen­tral Tai­wan, trans­form­ing the NTT into a hub where dig­i­tal, vi­sual and sound­scape art­works are ex­hib­ited on both a tem­po­rary and on­go­ing basis, con­nect­ing the arts with Taichung cit­i­zens’ daily lives. We or­ga­nize such ac­tiv­i­ties as in­ter­ac­tive the­ater pro­grams for the en­tire fam­ily. Older kids can join back­stage tours to learn about tech­ni­cal as­pects of stage­craft. We also offer in-depth ar­chi­tec­tural and botan­i­cal tours of the NTT.

NTT arranges fam­ily art pro­grams, teach­ing par­tic­i­pants to craft such fes­tive ob­jects as Christ­mas wreaths, gin­ger­bread houses, dec­o­ra­tive tapes and pop-up books on week­ends and dur­ing hol­i­day pe­ri­ods. Our “Play The­ater — Youth Cre­ative Work­shop” of­fers young peo­ple an out­let to de­velop their own po­ten­tial for self-ex­pres­sion through sto­ry­telling, end­ing with a final per­for­mance in our Black Box. We pro­vide el­e­men­tary and ju­nior high school teach­ers with teach­ing guides con­cern­ing tech­nol­ogy and dig­i­tal arts. For those wish­ing to nour­ish their souls, a wide va­ri­ety of play read­ings and pre-per­for­mance talks are held at the NTT for lovers of music, the­ater and dance.
