Social issues and fantasies are often made manifest when considered in the historical context. Suppose the two well-known figures in Taiwan’s history — Chiang Wei-shui and Teng Yu-hsien — were alive today. What would they want and think when seeing issues and conflicts in modern society? In this show, we will re-present social scenes of symbolic significance by employing contemporary circus concepts and languages and innovative juggling gears made by bamboos . With interplay of sound and images, these fantasies and clamors in society will come together into flesh in contemporary circus.
