Within the hallowed halls of a theatrical complex in Langfang, Hebei province, where the intertwining corridors of indoor theaters and myriad scenario spaces converge with the open expanse of outdoor stages, one can effortlessly immerse themselves in the rich world of the dramatic arts.

Traditional Chinese operas, contemporary dance, mime, multimedia theater, musicals and a variety of other performances by both artists from home and abroad adorn the tapestry of experiences.

In some chambers hosting theater workshops, led by artists from countries including France, Cuba and Poland, visitors, irrespective of language barriers, blur the lines between performer and spectator, delving into self-discovery through artistic expression where drama and music intertwine.

That's a scene from the 2024 World Theatre Day celebrations recently co-hosted by the China Theatre Association and the International Theatre Institute, a leading performing arts organization founded in 1948 by theater and dance experts and UNESCO.

March 27 marked World Theatre Day, initiated in 1962 by the theater institute headquartered in Paris. It celebrates the art form of theater and raises awareness among governments about its cultural and economic significance.
