Department of
Drama & Visuals

Overview

THE ORIGIN 

The role of theatres and visuals in moulding a civic-minded society and in stimulating thoughts has become increasingly important around the world. In an era where technology and humanity should be moving side by side, our society is still stepping on the same ground. The art columns on newspapers are declining or disappearing; theatre audience are decreasing; people step into Starbucks but not into an art gallery, a theatre or movie theatre that is showing non-commercial films.


Noticing the phenomena, New Era College set up the Drama and Visuals Department in 2005, with the intention of developing local theatre and visuals (film and video), as well as fascilitating to mould a society of civil and humane.


After World War Ⅱ, Hua Qiao Secondary School (华侨中学) and Yu Hua Secondary School of Kajang established the Avant-Garde Theatre Company.


Initiated by Zheng Tian Bao (郑天保) and the student committees of both schools, the Avant-Garde Theatre Company placed drama as the priority, with the belief that they could save the country through drama. Almost 70 years later, the Drama and Visuals Department of New Era College is set up on the same hill. The establishment is definitely meaningful, in terms of historical facts and future visions.
