2020 Taiwan Showcase Trailer - 8 Taiwanese Indigenous Performing Arts Groups

8 Taiwanese Indigenous Performing Arts Groups Featured at Arts Midwest + Western Arts Alliance 2020 Conference

Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles participated in the Western Arts Alliance (WAA) Annual Conference for the fourth consecutive year from October 6th to 9th, 2020. Due to the pandemic, this year marks the first virtual conference in collaboration with Arts Midwest.

TTaiwan Academy in Los Angeles recommends these 8 groups not only for their boundless dance or music works but for the promotion of some ongoing American tour projects as well. These 8 groups include 4 songwriters and singers (Sangpuy, Anu.kaliting.sadipangan, Chalaw pasiwali, and O-KAI Singers), and 4 contemporary dance troupes (Tjimur Dance Theatre, Kuo-Shin Chuang Pangcah Dance Theatre, TAI Body Theatre, and Bulareyaung Dance Company). They guide global viewers through the past and present, traversing the worlds of traditional songs and contemporary performances, and share with them how they work with cultural elements and contemporary issues as they reconstruct the relationship between humans and nature.
