The annual Taiwan Culture Festival in Hong Kong will focus on outdoor performances that showcase top and emerging artistic troupes this year.
Starting Nov. 1, the festival will feature 31 performances and 10 seminars, according to the Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Center, the Ministry of Culture's overseas office in Hong Kong and the organizer of the so-called 'Taiwan Month.'
Among them will be performances by Cloud Gate 2 - the youth and outreach wing of the renowned Cloud Gate Dance Theatre - the Ju Percussion Group, the Paper Windmill Theatre and the Guoguang Opera Company.
Dance troupe Shu-Yi and Dancers will also perform in a public square, while the Chio-Tian Folk Drums and Arts Troupe will cooperate with the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra in a percussion show that transforms a traditional Taiwanese folk drum parade into a performing arts piece.
The Taiwan Culture Festival was established on the premise of promoting deeper understanding of Taiwan's culture among the people of Hong Kong.
Now in its eighth year, previous renditions have showcased Taiwan's cuisine, music, theater, literature, films and tourist attractions.
