The “On The Spot Art Project", initiated by YINZI theatre independently, aims to invite creators in various fields to practice their creation. It’s a biannual stage exchange program. In the second session, it developed into "ONTHESPOT Experimental Arts Festival”.

The planning of the art plan is to show our understanding of the experimental theater, so as to show the artistic ideas of YINZI theater for avant-garde, experiment and creativity, hoping to inject more fresh possibilities into the current art creation through continuous activities.
