Now Theatre is a nonprofit performing arts site. It serves as an alternative performance space for Malaysian arts practitioners who wish to establish pure art creations and to voice out new ideas. We wish to provide a new location to catch what falls through the cracks between larger public institutions and commercial ventures.
Now Theatre is an open platform. We offer a supportive environment allowing artists to freely explore different kinds of artistic endeavors from any direction, including creative approaches, theatrical styles, ways of representation and artistic forms; bring up provocative issues and engage in critical thinking; try out experimental works with a different creative medium. Through opening up diverse conversations and exchanging multiple resources, we also hope to stimulate new ideas and broaden the vision of the arts.
There is always a reflection of vigor and vitality in experimental theatre, filled with an exuberant, creative force and innovative spirits. We hope to uphold such principles and remain a clear stream within Malaysia performing arts scene.
