The spirit of Taiwan’s indigenous peoples comes alive in the shared experience of music and dance. The elders in these tribes often encourage the younger generations to sing and dance with conviction, connecting to their land and meet with their ancestors’ spirits.Indigenous culture can only survive through participation. And in the immersive world of VR, cultural legacy can be passed on through a virtual dialogue with these ancestral spirits through technology.
In this captivating technological experience, participants will learn about how tribal hierarchy and culture are passed down through generations, while enjoying music and dance in the Annual Ceremony of Taiwan’s First Nations people.
This work is presented by Melbourne Fringe as part of Fringe Focus Taiwan, supported by The Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) and Cultural Division, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Sydney.
