Company profile

Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI) is an independent theatre school for contemporary artists. ITI began as the Theatre Training & Research Programme (TTRP), founded in 2000 by renowned dramatist, Kuo Pao Kun (1939–2002), and the current Director, T. Sasitharan, after a period of research, reflection and preparatory work.

It currently offers a three-year, practice-based, professional actor training programme founded on a rigorous, intercultural learning methodology with a view to producing original, contemporary theatre. The training encompasses exposure to a broad spectrum of cultures and languages, and immersion in traditional Asian theatre systems and contemporary theatre forms. Students are selected from among the best talents across Asia and beyond. ITI's distinguished alumni include Peter Sau, a recipient of the 2011 Young Artist Award by the National Arts Council and the Life! Theatre Awards; Yeo Yann Yann, a winner of the 2013 "Best Supporting Actress" Award for her role in Ilo Ilo at the Golden Horse Awards and many more.
