“[ITI] can positively affect not only the performing arts of Singapore but of the whole region and beyond… What is needed is what [ITI] can provide: an actor training curriculum that synthesises traditional and modern…systems”

Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI), an independent theatre school, offers a Professional Diploma in Intercultural Theatre (Acting), and started classes in January 2012 with an intake of 10 students.
ITI is based on Kuo Pao Kun’s vision of intercultural actor training using a matrix of traditional theatre systems and conceptions of theatre making from different cultures, with a view to producing critically and socially engaged artists who make original, contemporary theatre.
