Synopsis

A truck drives into a square and a moveable tent is set up. Audience members enter and hear the faint voices from the cracks in society. As the tent becomes a convergence of the thoughts of those both on stage and off, we feel the power of resistance that the entire action entails. Tent theater is theater occuring in a temporary tent. It originated out of experimental theater in post-war Japan in the 60's. "It aims to bring those voices and memories that have been relegated to the bottom of the society into the tents." Functioning both as observer and participant, the director documents the tent’s movements around Taiwan in the past decade.
