To mark the 30th anniversary of the National Theater & Concert Hall, a train on MRT Tamsui Line will be transformed into a mobile gallery, operating from October 2, 2017 through January 31, 2018.
A collaboration between National Theater & Concert Hall (NTCH) and Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC), the “NTCH x metro” program will infuse the theater’s exuberant elegance, the performance art library’s cultural and artistic ambiance, as well as the concert hall’s sublime air into the interiors of the carriages.
Not only will the decorations seek to imitate the design of NTCH, the train’s illumination system will also be tuned to generate dim lighting effects used by the performance venues. In addition, passengers are sure to be surprised at the sight of the red velvet seats transported from NTCH to be installed in the first and sixth cars of the train – to immerse riders in a simulated experience as if they were seated in the hall.
The carriages with the theme of performance art library will showcase the profuse collection of NTCH. By scanning the QR code on the interior walls, passengers will be able to watch selected music and theater performance clips, access related information, and take part in the online raffle.
As part of the program, an exhibition will be held at the art gallery near exit 5 of MRT Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Station featuring some of NTCH’s innovative services and iconic events over the past three decades. The exhibition ends on October 31.
