- Focused on the Mandarin-speaking communities in London, who might have been neglected as a minority audience group.
- Sharing the value and knowledge of theatre for everyone, helping to cultivate future audiences.
- Bridging the gap between youth and theatre professionals, deepening interest in the performing arts.
Aiming towards contributing to audience development and cultural diversity in the UK, we launched a series of audience events among the UK-based Chinese community. The events included theatre tours and seminars surrounding the Royal Shakespeare Company’s The Orphan of Zhao, a V&A theatre collection tour, Chinese New Year celebration and Women’s Day special event surrounding the National Theatre of Scotland’s production tour in London. We had about 15 to 20 participants joining each event, aged between 18 and 35, ranging from students to professionals, and it was also the very first theatre experience for many of them.
The event titles are as follows:
- The RSC production The Orphan of Zhao at Stratford-Upon-Avon
- Theatre and Performance Guided Tour at V&A Museum
- Feast, World Stages London Festival at Young Vic
- Why the Lion Danced with Yellow Earth Theatre
- Opening the Door: East Asians in British Theatre at British Theatre
- Insights: The Art of Theatre Lighting at Royal Opera House
- UKCTC Presents: In Conversation with Chen Xinyi and her “Religion of Dramatic Art”
