Tian Qinxin, a theater director from the National Theatre of China for 11 years, is considered one of the foremost avant-garde/experimental theater directors in China.

She is fond of traditional Chinese arts and skilled in creating visual effects by emphasizing physical movement, the beauty of scenery and costume, and poetic dialogue.

Her subject of choice is mostly world famous classics, which she interprets in a uniquely contemporary fashion. Her works usually evoke strong emotional reactions from audiences and are very much wooed by theater-goers.
