Women in Asia
How do Asian women challenge their continent’s model of development? Sharing stories and analyses about traditional societies and contemporary ways of life.
Like many others in Asia during her time, she was what we now call a ‘Comfort Woman’ – a term that I personally find highly inappropriate. Her story and appeal, however short, brought tears of pity...
Here we see her performance piece at the festival, and she talks us through it.
The main reason is one of international strategy. The period that will follow the presidential elections might be one of strong tensions across the Strait. Let us also remember that the year 2009 will mark the 60th anniversary of the Chinese regime: for many analysts, it means that around this time Beijing might want to register decisive progress in “solving the Taiwanese problem” as it says.

The theme of the festival was "Spiritual Renewal" as a special consideration to the setting, which was a village that had been badly hit by an earthquake a year earlier, and was still recovering from the structural damages, and the personal ones, as life had been lost. Artists were naturally suggested to make work relevant to the process of healing. To give a little context to this, I should say that typically, performance artists go to international festivals for reasons of both exposure and travel. We zip into a country, do a work that is often not directed at the environment we are...
