Pride Voices: New Plays from Taiwan features two excerpted readings of Taiwanese playwrights Li- Ying Chien and Pao-Chang Tsai, followed by a panel discussion. Through their plays and stage works Chien and Tsai have reinvigorated the Taiwanese theatre-scape. Blending new media, real-life event, and various performative techniques, their highly political and engaged works give voice to an emerging cultural movement in Taiwan. As established queer artists, their creative processes and cultural productions also shed light on the struggles and achievements of the LGBTQ community in Taiwan and Asia today.
The event is free and open to the public — RSVP below!
