Nine Years Theatre

nine-years-theatre

An award-winning company, Nine Years Theatre (NYT) is currently the only company under the National Arts Council’s Major Company Scheme that positions itself as a Singapore Mandarin theatre company. NYT sees Chinese culture as the foundation of its work but not the centre of its practice. It believes in the uniqueness of local Chinese culture and aspires to recognise and celebrate the multicultural identity of the Singaporean Chinese through theatre.

Since the beginning, the company has been invested in training actors, in order to create work that is consistent in quality. It strives to entertain audiences in ways that are honest and thoughtful. Its work is recognised for being relatable and culturally layered, possessing deep sensibilities that speak to audiences from all backgrounds. Fluid in scale and genre, NYT creates performances ranging from original plays and transcreations, to interdisciplinary and international collaborations.

Nine Years Theatre Ltd is supported by the National Arts Council under the Major Company Scheme from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2025. It is a charity with IPC status.
