          光華新聞文化中心主任胡晴舫表示,瑰麗奔放是外界對台灣文化的印像。因為豐色,所以艷!今年台灣月節目帶有獨特雜揉的華麗美感,就像來自世界八方的外來混生種,在台灣落地生長綻放,展現出台灣創作在傳統與創新的跨界共融,以及美麗與善變的新面貌。

      《STAGE》攝影展為攝影家沈昭良經典系列作,敘述台灣鄉間特有的綜藝團與舞台車,在夜幕降臨時,從其貌不揚的卡車,像變形金剛一樣,伸展成絢麗無比的舞台。沈昭良長期關注這個台灣庶民文化獨特新穎的表演形式,「STAGE」(舞台)作品細膩寫實又超現實的樣貌,獨創台式美感。

 

 

多元聲音/來自土地的音樂、唱出大海的旋律

 

        新世代的台灣音樂創作是超越語言及語種,回歸音樂的本質核心;在自由的音樂內容裡,傳達及記錄當代台灣人的情感。「台灣月」企圖呈現台灣多元音樂魅力,以台灣在地元素為基調的生祥樂隊、原住民歌手Sangpuy桑布伊與ABAO阿爆(阿仍仍) ,他們以母語搭配不同曲風及流行旋律,創新也沿襲文化精神。

2017台灣月活動新聞發佈會敬請發佈

 

Wonderful World, Colorful Taiwan

Abundance of colors leads to the dazzling beauty!

   

          The 12th Taiwan Culture Festival will be brought to the stage by Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Centre, starting from 12th Oct. to 24th Nov. “Wonderful World, Colorful Taiwan” is the theme of the 2017 Taiwan Culture Festival, a Dazzlingly Beautiful Taiwan with Abundant Charms, showcasing as multicultural colorful rainbow coloring the event with the picturesque atmosphere of Taiwanese temple festivals.

 

 

          According to Hu Ching-Fang, Director of Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Center, Taiwan culture is famed for its glam and expressiveness, which leads the abundance of colors to a dazzling beauty! This year’s various events highlights the unique charm of intertwined glamour. These are like blossoms growing from foreign hybrids settling in the land of Taiwan, revealing how Taiwanese creative arts emerged when traditions and innovations embracing each other, and its constantly evolving beauty.

 

 

Glamorous: Peking Opera Crossing Over to Modernism

                  A Western Interpretation of Taiwanese Musical Classics

 

    

 

  Wu Hsing-Kuo and Contemporary Legend Theatre will perform a modern Peking opera adaptation of Waiting for Godot, a western classic, for the Festival. Led by Wu Hsing-Kuo and Chien Sheng, the performance breaks the structure of a traditional Peking opera with a dash of dark humor, featuring the traditional techniques of singing, reciting, acting and martial arts performing. Ma Pao-Shan, the founding artist of Contemporary Legend Theatre, a director of the GuoGuang Opera Company, will play as Pozzo, a tyrannical plutocrat who tortures his slave, Lucky, by whimsical commands such as thinking or dancing. This interpretation of Waiting for Godot shows the full glory of theatrical form and rhythm, fueled by detachment and ridiculousness but is nevertheless funny. It unveils the hidden Zen and philosophy to the audience through laughter. Wu Hsing-Kuo and Chien Sheng, two leading actors of the play, improvised a few lines of Peking opera during the press conference to demonstrate their adaptation. Moreover, Taiwan Culture Festival will cooperate with Zuni Icosahedron to present you In Search of Lost Time, a Freespace play, in which the brilliant Taiwanese Peking opera actress, Wei Haimin, will reinterpret a western masterpiece through Peking opera singing.

 

     

 

Wen-Pin Chien & Kaohsiung Symphony Orchestra will perform Taiwan Acoustic: A Night of Master Composers, assisted by the musical department of Hong Kong University. The performance will include the original works of three major contemporary Taiwanese composers and Taiwan folksongs. The CEO of Kaohsiung Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Chu Hung-Chang, has explained the details of the four songs in the performance during the press conference. We hope Taiwan Acoustic can be a visionary tour like of Taiwanese culture for Hong Kong audiences..

 

 

 

Rose-gold Aesthetics: The Multicultural Elegance of Taiwanese Life Style

 

           New Paradise of Silent Island by the most prominent post-80s Taiwanese choreographist Ho Hsiao-Mei is our specially recommended programme this year. With three tall mobile stage of puppet pageants, it invites the audience touring the stage to experience this glittering Ukiyo-e of Taiwanese meeting the West. With exquisite subtle feminine emotions, Ho presented the splendid multicultural contemporary Taiwan. When speaking of rebuilding New Paradise of Silent Island in Hong Kong, Ho said ‘I draw my inspiration from Taiwanese mainstream phenomena and sub-cultures. The beauty of Taiwan lies in its inner cultural contradictions.’

 

    

STAGE, the photo exhibition, is a classic series of Shen Chao-Liang’s works telling stories of vaudeville troupes and their truck theaters. When night falls, these ordinary trucks will transform themselves into sparkling theaters. Through time and efforts, Shen have captured the very unique rural Taiwan through the photographer’s lens, a refined combination of the real and surreal creating the unique Taiwanese beauty.

 

Multicultural Voices: Home-bound Music with Oceanic Melodies 

 

 

        New generation Taiwanese music goes beyond words and languages, getting back to the core musical essence. These young musicians expressed and recorded the feelings of contemporary Taiwanese in their unchained music content. To bring to you the charisma of multicultural Taiwanese music, the Festival has invited the Sheng-Xiang & Band whom is famed for their brilliance in creating music based on local Taiwanese concerns; aboriginal singers Sangpuy and ABAO (Aljenljeng) passing on their traditional culture through creating music with their month tongue across genres and pop rhythms.

 

 

Awarded with the Jury Award of the 2017 Golden Melody Award, Sheng-Xiang & Band, who have a long history with social movements, base their music with a touch of modern western tunes, forming a new genre for Taiwanese folk music. Sheng-Xiang, the leading vocal of the band, plays with his tailor made six-string yueqin banjo, which deepens the depth of Going Away, Not Leaving, a song from their latest album, Village Besieged. We are honored to invite an icon of Hong Kong indie-band scene, the leading vocal of the legendary Black Bird, Lenny Kuo; these two home-bound musicians will perform together for the very first time!

 

       

          It is the first time that Taiwan Culture Festival works with Freespace Happening, an event conducted by West Kowloon Cultural District, and in Sangpuy and ABAO will play for Hong Kong audience. Sangpuy’s voice is a dialogue between a modern tribal young man and an ancient soul, as Ma Shih-Fang put it, ‘His songs are the gentle wind blowing throw a mountain blossomed with cogon grass’, which defines him as the voice for the generation of Taiwanese music. ABAO (Aljenljeng) is a singer from the Payuan tribe; with his blissful voice, ABAO combines different genres music with pop tunes, singing them in his mother tongue, passing on their traditional culture through innovation, adding a new spirit into the ancient tunes. Even if the audience don’t know the  Payuan language, they are still astounded and moved by ABAO’s  emotion-conveying songs!

 

Celebrating the fifth anniversary of the eslite bookstore in Hong Kong, the Festival brings you to a sleepless illusive journey of arts and culture, holding on to the never asleep spirit pioneered by eslite. In honor of this spirit, the Festival conducts The Night of Dark Circles, which is composed with a series of musical performances, lectures, movies and installation art. In the name of love, lectures will be given by Tsui Shun-Hwa, a talented young Taiwanese poet, Lee Ming-Tsung, author, Yeh Shan, writer; and two Hong Kong artists Tang Siu-Wa, writer, Lau Zi Wan, poet. The night-time cinema will play classic romantic movies such as Blue Gate Crossing, Cape No. 7, When Love Comes as well as Wei Te-Sheng’s latest work 52Hz I Love You. We believe this event will prove to be a feast for the eyes, the ears and the tongue.

 

Twin Cities Chronicle, a play conducted by a group from Tainan and a Hong Kong Theatre Space, will be performed in Hong Kong after its first success in 2016 Tainan Arts Festival. The play is the joined effort of  Hsu Chen-Ping, a director form Tainan, whose most well know work is Eternal Summer, Cheung Fei Fan, a prominent Hong Kong playwright, who is well-loved by theatrical and TV audiences; more importantly, it is the tale of two cities. The director, Yu Chun Kau, divides the stage into two, and flight attendances of China Airlines will guide them to their seats, allowing them to choose between Hong Kong and Tainan, enabling different angles and experiences based on the two cities. China Airline offers a special discount to the audience of this play.

 

 Concluding the Festival this year we are paying tribute to late Mr. Chi PoLin, director of Beyond Beauty - TAIWAN FROM ABOVE, best documentary of the 2015 Golden Horse Award, a globally loved film,and arranged special screenings of the documentary in memory of the late director. We invite the producer of the film, Tseng Chiung-Yao, and  Shen Ko-Shang, a film director and the director of Taipei Film Festival. We wish the film can raise more concerns of the general public on environmental ecology.
