DFT’s birthday party will pick up again in April with Moon River 2.0 in April as part of next year’s TIFA, a production with the all-male dance company The Condors from Tokyo, whose Moon River coproduction with DFT in June 2010 at the National Theater was a hysterical romp.

DFT’s final birthday present is a yet-to-be-titled work by Netherlands-based Spanish choreographer Marina Mascerell, a resident artist at Korzo who has worked with the company four times before, each one a riveting production: 2010’s Like an Olive Tree, 2013’s The Unreality of Time (時境) and 2015’s It is like a large animal deep in sleep (沉睡的巨獸) and Three Times Rebel in 2017.

Temporarily entitled Media, it will premiere at the National Kaohsiung Centre for the Arts (Weiwuying) on Oct. 31 next year.
