Drift Project: Cargo Station

Free – donations welcome

Drift Project: Cargo Station is a continuing project from In Search of the Island Memories (2016-2018), which entangles with family histories and stories about drifting within Asian islands. From economic immigration to war turmoil, time is used to look at the unsolved refugee crises. Taiwan has always been an orphan or political refugee. So how does it face refugee issues? Taking drifting as the topic, Drift Project: Cargo Station looks at history and geography and re-imagines all drifting in Taiwan and beyond.

Stream live at 2pm on 15 June – see below.

From Performosa Theatre. The word “Performosa” derives from “Formosa,” a name referring to Taiwan, and “performer.” Performosa Theatre is an actor-based company, whose goal is to nurture and to connect local theatre to the international. By encouraging interdisciplinary conversation, it hopes to instil new energy to diversify the local theatrical scene.

For all ages.

Free – donations welcome.
