Was the online theatre and digital performance just a fleeting phenomenon during the crisis? Or does it indicate that the performing arts industry, with theater venue as its primary production domain, is embarking on a new operational model?


Panel Discussions

The theme of this year’s conference is Mind the Gap, Lead the Path, with the focus on four major challenges that performing arts venues around the world are facing: continuous innovation, local connections, constant sustainability, and AI technology. Each forum session has been designed to inspire new thinking and action plans by theater decision makers and leaders. Working together, cultural gaps can be eliminated, ensuring that arts and culture continue to move forward. 



TPAC warmly welcomes AAPPAC Conference attendees to experience the diversity, innovation, and abundant energy of Taiwan's performing arts through a wonderful performance program.


Connecting Series

The Connecting Series is an opportunity for AAPPAC members to share ideas on potential partnerships through the development and presentation of new work. It aims to connect the network through partnerships; providing a platform for commissioning between members, with key outcomes of a greater longevity for work and increase exposure for artists.
