Grounded on Zen values, Artistic Director Chan Wing-chuen introduces “Inner Peace in Movement” through drama productions by promoting traditional Zen virtues

Aims to present drama shows and workshops infused with an eastern aesthetic allure that address key social issues caused by worldly desires and troubles including unsettled familial relationships and adolescents’ struggle for self-identity

Focuses on style – engaging acting that connects text, space, actors and audience closely to create a poetic theatre experience, evoking imagination and emotions relating to audiences’ personal lives, initiating self-reflection

Notable productions include the drama Eight Hundred Years of Hatred, Eight Hundred Years of Healing (2011 & 2013), A Bright Dark Night (2014) and The Heart Sutra (2016). A Bright Dark Night was awarded Best Original Songs and Lyrics as well as nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 24th Hong Kong Drama Awards in 2015 and was performed at Taipei in 2016 upon invitation by Huawen Original Musical Festival
