Program Description

New Performance Group and Studio NPG are dedicated to deepening intercultural communication and exchange through the performing arts and arts education. Communication and exchange occur within "micro-cultures" living in the same city, or may stretch across oceans. In either case, the larger goal is mutual understanding, which on a global level promotes peace and harmony in the world. This philosophy informs our work, whether on stage or in the classroom.
