Chong Wang

Théâtre du Rêve Expérimental
Artistic Director (VR NOW Con Speaker)
Wang Chong is the artistic director of Beijing-based performance group Théâtre du Rêve Expérimental. He has become the most internationally commissioned Chinese theater director. His works have been invited to festivals in 16 countries.
In 2012 he started the Chinese New Wave Theater Movement by presenting a series of new performances with innovative use of body, space, live video and sound. Making theater relevant to the issues of the 21st century, this ongoing movement gained critical and popular acclaims. UK-based magazine International Arts Management notes “Taking a radical approach to both form and text, Théâtre du Rêve Expérimental has been changing the face of China’s theatrical landscape.”
His productions include: Teahouse 2.0, winning One Drama Award for Best Little Theater Performance of Year 2017; Lu Xun, noted by The Beijing News as The Best Chinese Production of Year 2016; The Warfare of Landmine 2.0, winning 2013 Festival/Tokyo Award.
In 2016 Wang stopped using cellphone and social networks. He currently lives in The De-electrified Territory (TDT, or Ting Dian Ting), a self-designed Beijing apartment that has no electricity and no electronics.
