About Campaign

At Nine Years Theatre, we believe in regular and long-term training for our actors. We want to develop a sustainable group of company actors to create works that are consistent, grounded and integral. We hope to develop the Mandarin theatre scene in Singapore, and to become a stakeholder on the international platform. Furthermore, we continue to engage our audience beyond the performances, as we believe that audiences should not merely consume art, but also be offered the opportunity to discuss art.

About the Charity

Nine Years Theatre is a Singapore Mandarin theatre company that loves to dream up game-changing ways to do things. Since the beginning, we have insisted on the hard route of investing time and effort in training our actors, so that we can create works that feel integrated because of consistency and grounded-ness. We believe in entertaining our audience, but in ways that are honest and thoughtful. We present Mandarin productions with English surtitles. They are often described as culturally challenging, emotionally universal and full of care for humanity. Our works have therefore always allowed us to connect with audiences from all backgrounds. We like to busy ourselves with ideas on how to engage our audiences beyond performances, and to share our knowledge with the larger community. We are also very interested in finding ways to dialogue with local and international counterparts through difficult but meaningful collaboration.

What Are Our Beliefs?
- That we will not create without training, and that we will train in order to create.
- That our work will always benefit from it being difficult to make.
- That the audience should not merely consume art, but be given the opportunity to discuss art.
- That Theatre is always about people.
