Dance into the weekend

The Taipei Arts Festival and Fringe Festival offer dance lovers plenty of top notch performances

By Diane Baker  /  Staff reporter

On Saturday and Sunday, the Nanhai Gallery is playing host to Travel Through (穿梭) by Macaroon Dance Theater, which sounds very formal, but is actually made up of three seniors at universities in Taipei who all have backgrounds in dance, though not all are studying it now. They say that their piece is a collection of stories from the past, present and future.
