To Liu, the idea of collecting junk is the most important message that “the production, or even Taiwan, for that matter” has to offer.
“We weren’t aware of the fact that we’d become recyclers until we went to China, where everything is new and efficient,” the director said. “Then it hit us: ‘Oh, that’s right. We now recycle junk,’” Liu said.
After its Taipei premiere, Blanche: a Bebop Musical will be staged at the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Center for 24 performances from January through February next year.
