Mission Statement

CHUANG Stage cultivates joyful and challenging Asian American stories that pioneer a new activism in the arts.

About CHUANG Stage

Founded in 2018, CHUANG Stage is the first nationwide Mandarin-English bilingual, bicultural theatre company. CHUANG Stage helped Boston build a future in the American theatre that is moved forward by theatre artists and audiences of Asian decent, through innovative productions that contribute to language access and immigrant visibility. CHUANG Stage centers community and industry partnership, advancing diversity accountability at collaborating institutions, and uplifting engagement-based arts practices. Our flagship student theatre initiative at Emerson College, CHUANG Lab, advances the next generation of young theatre artists from China.

“CHUANG” is pronounced like “tron”, meaning to begin, to initiate, to start, and to create in Mandarin Chinese.
