Pictured is Ising Suaiyung (with the new character) one of the soul members of the TAI Body Theatre in the play Tjakudayi.SoyYong), a graduate of the National Donghua University Multicultural Institute, in addition to the love of performance work, but also a row bay poet.In 2015, Kylo posted a flyer at Royal Mile at Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a new dress from the beautiful Cove family.”This dance is originally adapted from a new novel of the same name, through the love songs of the Row Bay people to write love, because the Laiyi tribe has been hit hard by the eight-eight wind disaster, in the writing inevitably there are many projects on the tribe to move to the village.”The fun of these love songs comes from the double obscurity and straightforwardity of speaking out about the various imaginations of the person you like, but still vaguely not making people know who the clear object is.Guess the fun, make the ballad open and creative.This year’s version is almost detached from the novel, groping ballads as carriers of emotional expression, and corresponding to changes in the foot spectrum.From: choreographer Vadan.Toshie turns the traditional earth in “Dancing With the Land” 2018-06-01

In Taiwan, people who have lived under the colonies for more than 400 years, faced with the loss of culture, and the basic self-identification of “who Am I” are still the process that most ethnic groups are going through.And a theater focused on Taiwan’s indigenous culture, we think about how to use the body’s movements in the form of a theater to present the cultural meaning to be expressed, as if how to break the traditional culture pieced together into their own part, and these pieces of the puzzle, in fact, originally belong to their own fragments.

Because Carol’s good friend Yi-Hsin, so that Kylo has the opportunity to visit pingdong to Yixiang, than because of the eight wind disaster moved to the village of the mountain under the new home, Kylo more like the mountain environment, but also can imagine the new final said that the intricate cut constantly and even chaotic mood, need to rely on the clan people together to clear the finishing.There are many ways in which TAI Body Theatre uses body perception to transform its footspectrum, trying to sort out certain emotions in the process, in addition to indirectly assisting people who have also experienced cultural fractures, but also expecting non-indigenous audiences to have a deeper understanding of the Indigenous people.

The broad art therapy, also known as expressive art therapy, includes art, music, drama, dance and other methods, so that we can use a more relaxed way, naturally from the process to reveal the mind of the mind, by leading the guidance to understand themselves, towards the body and mind Well-being (health).One of the long-term cooperative tribes, Hualien County Xiulin Township Truku Du Xinxuan, the return: “I think your method is very good, from several times with your experience, I observed that the first, expressional art healing is acceptable to the people of the clan, and they like, the focus is also helpful to them.”
