Offing – Melbourne Fringe – VR
November 15 @ 2:00 pm – November 20 @ 4:30 pm
Melbourne Fringe and the Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) present Fringe Focus Taiwan – a live VR experience bringing the best artists from Taiwan to Melbourne.
Every year the migrating flying fish follow the northern tides in the East Pacific Ocean. One of their first stops is Orchid Island – a small, volcanic haven; home of the Austronesian indigenous descendants, the Tao.
The Tao spend more than half of the year dedicated to the Flying Fish Festival – celebrating the most symbolic animal and important food source on the island.
Be immersed in the stunning surrounds of Orchid Island, experience the preparations for the festival and observe how climate change and globalisation are threatening the fish and island life.
This work is presented by Melbourne Fringe in association with Kaohsiung Film Archive VR FILM LAB; 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.
