6393 NW Marine Drive
UBC’s Museum of Anthropology (MOA) is pleased to present the premiere of the Taiwanese Puppetry Festival from November 4 – 9, 2014 at MOA. Spotlight Taiwan is a new initiative focusing on Taiwan’s sophisticated multicultural identity and highlighting the performing arts as a key component of the country’s rich history. Direct from Taiwan, the Taiyuan Puppet Theatre and the Chin Fei Feng Marionette Theatre Troupe will offer puppetry workshops, school shows, and public performances at MOA. These events will culminate in an exciting cultural exchange on November 9 at 3pm, when visiting Taiwanese puppeteers will spend the day with invited First Nations artists to create a collaborative experimental work.
