A packed dance card

Taipei is bursting with dance performances next weekend, which, if you are a TNUA student, alumnus or teacher wanting to keep up with the School of Dance’s current students or graduates, could prove tricky

The show times will also maximize the winter sun, weather permitting, since the LAB space has large windows along two sides.

Tickets are NT$700.

After Masses, another TNUA-connected show, A Piece of Cake, starts at the LAB space on Dec. 19 for a five-show run.

It is also aimed at raising questions. Liu and his two performers say that they want to know why we cannot enjoy pain as much as we enjoy happiness, why do we always want things to be “a piece of cake?”

As a production designed to break down the wall between the performers and audience, Wang and Shen will shuffle quickly through time and relationships.

Liu earned a graduate degree from TNUA, as did Wang, while Shen also attended the university.

A Piece of Cake opens on Dec. 19 for five shows, with the evenings at 7:30pm and matinees on Dec. 21 and 22 at 2:30pm. Tickets are NT$800.
