Founded in 2006 in Taipei, Shinehouse Theatre’s pieces are aimed to reflect and document contemporary society, largely involving social issues as well as local issues in WanHua where they recently based. Through interviewing homeless and sex workers, they created Monga Trilogy that seeks for the truth behind stereotypes. Through acting, Shinehous Theatre reaches toward the land, bring theatre back to daily life, and embrace all different cultures. Shinehouse Theatre has been invited internationally recently, including the last Asian Art Performance Festival in Japan; other places include Shanghai, Bangkok and others. We wish that, through the power of theatre, our piece can move audiences from different language or culture along the same life as a mankind.
