The theatrical troupe Creative Society was originally founded in May 1997 by a group of veteran Taiwanese theater directors, drama scholars, art administrators, and media workers, a seven-person team of Jiang Shifang, Chi Wei-jan, Katherine Chou, Wei Ying-chuan, Li Huan-hsiung, Lin Jing-yun, and Lee Yung-ping. Taking its inspiration and drive from observations of the close relationship between modern theater and the pulse and evolution of society, the group has throughout its existence been deeply committed to exploring new aesthetic styles and creative elements with original scripts.
