The Everyman of Taiwanese Theatre

by on Wednesday, 14 September 2011 Comments

In recent years, Taiwanese Theatre has made an attempt to reach out to ordinary people in Taiwan. Trying to span the crevasse between the traditional theatre-going audience, mainly consisting of the upper middle-class and the imaginary of the Taiwanese "everyman", those who have never set foot in a theatre before. This has led to a new cacophony of theatrical forms aimed at removing the esoteric elitist reputation. In this month’s Focus, we take a closer look at some new theatrical forms in Taiwan, and influences from abroad.
