Greater Tainan’s first annual Tainan Arts Festival begins today and will last until June 17, with great performance after great performance taking the stage. Taiwanese and international performance groups will be performing at famous cultural venues and historic sites. Greater Tainan Mayor William Lai, Greater Tainan’s Cultural Affairs Bureau director Yeh Tse-shan and some of the groups participating in the festival held a press conference on Feb. 16, inviting people to attend the festival’s performances.

Lai said that 22 of Taiwan’s 89 national historic sites are located in Greater Tainan, and that the festival will be combining these fixed historic sites together with dynamic performances, amply displaying the ancient characteristics of the city and infusing local residents with culture in hopes of making them feel proud to be from Tainan.

Yeh said 39 performance groups were invited to give 72 performances for the festival, which exhibit three broad themes: international classic art, exquisite Taiwanese art, and metropolitan stage art. Performances will include drama, dance, traditional art forms, as well as performances for children, making for a very diverse and complete performance repertoire. There will be enjoyable performances for all age groups. Performance venues include the performance halls at culture centers in Greater Tainan, Sinying District, and Gueiren District, as well as historic sites, old houses and cultural areas.

Performances will include the Scarecrow Contemporary Dance Company, the Lin Long Dance Group, the Taiwan New Style Folk Dance, the Liaomoshi Dance Theater, the Ten Drum Art Percussion Group, the Siou-Ching Taiwanese Opera Troupe, That Troupe, and the New Visions New Voices Theater Company.
