Mountain Theatre

Ever since its inception, U-Theatre’s has settled its roots deep and high up in the lush and rugged landscape of Laochuan Mountain an hour outside of Taipei. It is where each new production is created and rehearsed, and the site’s 500-seat open theatre is where the troupe debuts its annual productions.
Every morning, the U-Performers gather from all over Taipei at this simple and natural “cradle” to attend rehearsals and training sessions with an emphasis on meditation. It is our belief that through meditation, one is able to reflect and maintain an inner calmness amidst this kaleidoscopic world; furthermore, the same tranquility can interact with any given audience to crystallize moments of living the present.
