Taiwanese Waves Returns to SummerStage and Celebrates Women’s Empowerment
2019/08/01

Taiwanese Waves, the groundbreaking concert series that showcases the latest wave of Taiwanese music, will return for its 4th time to Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage on Saturday, August 3! This year four female-fronted Taiwanese acts are in focus, including both rising stars and long-time favorites. All representing the current wave of popular Taiwanese music.

Supported by Ministry of Culture, Taiwan and presented by Taiwanese Waves, this year, the women are in focus. Taiwanese Waves' curator Mia Min Yen says she consciously wanted to spotlight female-fronted bands and artists this year.

"Asian females are a minority among minorities, so we wanted to use our platform to give them a voice. We selected the four acts this year to represent female artists of different generations in Taiwanese pop music," says Yen.
The four acts were also chosen as they portray a variety of the current Taiwanese popular music trends. Wan Fang is a clear depiction of the karaoke-friendly Mando-Pop ballads while Tizzy Bac’s piano rock represent the "indie band era" of the early 2000's - a direct result of Taiwan lifting the restrictive martial law in the 90s.
9m88 and Aboa are both heavily inspired by American urban music culture. Abao's lyrics, however, are in her tribe's indigenous language while 9m88 makes the genre her own by singing in both English and Mandarin.

Featuring:
• 9m88 aka. Baba is a Taipei-raised but New York-based musician. Her musical genres include Jazz, R&B, Pop, and Free Improvisation. She released the single "Aiming High" on 7/3, her debut album is out August 8.
• Abao successfully turned herself from a Mando-Pop singer into an indigenous R&B singer, winning 2017 Best Indigenous Album and Best Album Producer at the 28th Golden Melody Awards with Vavayan.
• Tizzy Bac is a unique trio playing piano rock. Sadly while recording their seventh album last year, bassist Che Yu, passed away following a long battle with cancer. With thoughts of Che Yu and a deeper understanding of life, they pushed on and churned out Him, their most moving and mature album to date.
• Wan Fang is one of the most recognizable and beloved voices in Taiwanese pop music. She sings the theme song on the movie "Dear Ex," currently streaming on Netflix.

AAIFF 42: 3 Festival Highlights We Can’t Wait to See
2019/07/20

The Taipei Cultural Center in New York is excited to be partnering up with the annual 42th Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) to celebrate the recent achievements in Taiwanese and Taiwanese American cinema. This year’s festival highlights a compelling lineup that you can’t miss: a special 25th Anniversary 35mm presentation of acclaimed artist Shu Lea Cheang’s seminal debut feature Fresh Kill, Ho Wi-Ding’s TIFF prizewinner Cities of Last Things, alongside Valerie Soe’s provocative documentary Love Boat: Taiwan.


Shu Lea Cheang is a multimedia artist who has been active in experimental video and net art since the early 1980s. As a net art pioneer, Cheang’s  Brandon (1998-1999) was the first web art commissioned and collected by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. She is also the first female artist to represent Taiwan in a solo exhibition at the 2019 Venice Biennale. In her feature debut Fresh Kill she created the term “Cybernoia” to tell a story involving corporate conspiracies, pollution and community activism. In conjunction with this ultra-rare screening since its Berlinale premiere in 1994, a career-spanning conversation event with Cheang will also take place on July 27 at Asia Society in New York.


Valerie Soe’s Love Boat: Taiwan, a documentary about Taiwan’s Overseas Compatriot Youth Formosa Study Tour, traces Chinese diaspora and Taiwanese identities by exploring the history and popularity of this summer camp that has become a legend among diasporic Taiwanese while whose famous alumni include US Congresswoman Judy Chu, buzzfeed’s Justin Tan, and singer Wang Lee-hom. As a Love Boat alumna, Soe will talk about the making of this documentary and share her thoughts on Love Boat at the N.Y. premiere on July 31.


Ho Wi-Ding is a Malaysian-born, Taiwan-based filmmaker who was awarded 2018 TIFF’s Platform Prize for Cities of Last Things, the first Chinese-language film honoree of this award. This arresting tale follows the life of a man at three extraordinary nights, told in reverse-chronological order. Having just been streaming on Netflix, this film will be shown on the big screen in New York for the first time on Aug 2.


This year’s AAIFF will also feature five shorts by filmmakers of Taiwanese descent. Titles include Roxy Shih’s THE VISIT; Serena Kuo’s END OF SUMMER; Eugene Suen’s MASTERS OF DIVINITY; Athena Han’s BUNNY MAN; and Clifford Miu’s AH GONG during the festival’s run.


As the first and longest running Asian film festival in the U.S., the AAIFF is dedicated to showing films by or about Asians and Asian Americans.

I Wan Jan Puppet Theatre Tours in USA this Summer
2019/07/02

Internationally acclaimed Taiwanese puppetry company - I Wan Jan Puppet Theatre 亦宛然掌中劇團 – tours to Boston, New York, Detroit and Ann Arbor this summer.

Supported by Ministry of Culture, Taiwan and presented by Puppet Showplace Theater (Boston), Flushing Town Hall (New York), Detroit Institute of Arts and Ann Arbor District Library, I Wan Jan will perform Cave of Fire and Cloud (火雲洞), A Chance Encounter (巧遇姻緣) and Wu-Song Fights A Tiger (武松打虎) with intricate puppets, expert manipulation, and lively music and will take your breath away

The traditional Cave of Fire and Cloud story is adapted from Journey to the West (西遊記). The high-energy, non-verbal episode includes exciting martial arts scenes. A Chance Encounter is puppetry version of a hero rescued a beauty drama with exquisite traditional hand puppet techniques. Wu-Song Fights A Tiger is a chapter in Water Margin (水滸傳), a Chinese novel considered one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature.

I Wan Jan Puppet Theatre will host puppetry workshops at Sandwich Public Library (Boston) and Flushing Town Hall (New York), as well as participating in the Ann Arbor Art Fair. Puppeteers from I Wan Jan will demonstrate basic techniques of manipulating hand puppets for maximum drama. Participants will have a chance to use intricate hand puppets belonging to the troupe.

I Wan Jan Puppet Theater is an acclaimed hand puppet troupe that led the revival of Bu Dai Xi, a traditional folk art that had declined with the advent of movies and television in Taiwan. Founded in 1931 by the highly-respected Taiwanese puppet master, Li Tien-lu (李天祿), the fourth-generation Taiwanese hand puppet company is best known for its intricate puppet manipulation, which incorporates Peking opera-style techniques and lively classical Chinese music.

In addition to promoting hand puppetry in Taiwan, I Wan Jan also developed a storytelling style without Taiwanese dialogue. This has helped to make hand puppetry more accessible for global audiences, and I Wan Jan has performed in China, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy, Morocco, and the United States.

Hand puppet shows, also known as Zhan-zhong-xi (drama of the palm of the hand, 掌中戲) or Bu-dai-xi (cloth bag drama, 布袋戲), have been a tradition in Taiwan for centuries. Traditional hand puppet performances are conducted by two teams: the “front stage” team, who operate the puppets, and the “back stage” team, who perform the music. The plays are typically adaptations from classical novels that incorporate history, mythology, and folk heroes.

Four Taiwanese Films Not to Miss from the 2019 New York Asian Film Festival
2019/06/20

The Taipei Cultural Center in New York is partnering with the essential annual  New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) to celebrate its 18th edition with a four-film selection that shines a bright light on Taiwan’s comedy cinema and genre output during the festival’s run from June 28 to July 14, plus audience Q&As following the shows.


Described by the NYAFF as “resolutely pop, accessible, and unapologetically fun in a way not normally associated with productions from the island better known for its art-house and experimental output,” this year’s Taiwan Cinema section will unlock the audiences’ imagination with heartfelt laughter and tears.


Highlight includes Huang Chao-liang’s Taipei Film Award-nominated HAN DAN, starring Cheng Jen-shuo (Gatao 2: Rise of the King); Hung Tzu-hsuan’s action genre circuit hit THE SCOUNDRELS; the madcap comedy based on the popular theater piece with the same title IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD SHOW; and the romantic tale SOMEONE IN THE CLOUDS, featuring a story of searching for the meaning of true love. Director Huang Chao-liang and co-director Mitch Lin and Gary Tseng will appear in person for HAN DAN and SOMEONE IN THE CLOUDS respectively to discuss their films.


As North America's leading festival of Asian cinema, the New York Asian Film Festival is presented by the New York Asian Film Foundation in collaboration with Film at Lincoln Center. This year’s Taiwan Cinema section takes place from June 30 through July 4 at FLC’s Walter Reade Theater and July 13 at SVA Theater, presented with the support of the Taipei Cultural Center in New York.

An upstanding young man commits a reckless act that ends in life-changing tragedy. His doomed rival becomes his friend, only to become his rival again. Set against the tradition where men seek atonement by submitting themselves to ritualized firecracker attacks (as effigies of the deity Han Dan), this film not only reveals unique aspects of Taiwanese culture but its complex psyche as well. Featuring stunning cinematography and nuanced performances, Han Dan weaves universal themes into a novel, eye-opening moral tale.

One night while trying to help an injured woman, he is hijacked and framed for robbery. Inextricably entwined with the real culprit, and haunted by a public that thinks he’s to blame, Rui falls into a downward spiral of crime, treachery, and violence. Known for his intricately choreographed short films, Hung Tzu-Hsuan makes his electrifying feature debut with this taut, action-packed thriller, marking him a talent to watch.

He promotes failing producer Yeh to program director, and fires the staff. Yeh, his best friend, an aspiring actress, and a team of interns create inventive DIY programs, from weird kiddie shows to offbeat celebrity homages. Surprisingly viewership grows, but Mr. Lo has something else up his sleeve. And then things get really crazy in this madcap farce, a glorious tribute to the spirit of creativity.

Hsiao-pei carries on her family’s fortune telling tradition, almost exclusively giving young women love advice. She also runs her college’s tarot club through which she meets the playfully cocky Chiung-nan, who uses the cards to ask her out. A hilariously rocky romance ensues, replete with a clumsy seduction, an unexpected fire and both figurative and literal ball busting. A host of characters around them add to the fray on their search for the meaning of true love in this hysterical upheaval of the romcom where things are not always as predictable as they may seem.
