TakaoRun TroupeTakaoRun Troupe, founded in 1997, speaks volumes about the beauty of Taiwanese culture and the story of its people nationwide and abroad for 19 years. The elements of our performance come from those people who live and breathe with this land we call home; for instance, Temple Parade, Taiwanese Opera and folk songs of Taiwanese.
As a multicultural and multiracial nation, Taiwan has a considerable amount of different languages and customs, for it had been colonized or governed by many countries and groups through centuries, e.g. East India Company from Netherlands, Pirates from East and South China Sea, Qing dynasty from China and Empire of Japan; moreover, there are 16 different native tribes living on this island.
The history of Taiwan is rich in stories worth telling, and therefore Yen Yung-Neng and TakaoRun Troupe devoted themself to singing the songs once been sung on this land and dancing along its heartbeats; thus, we invite you to travel with us from cities to villages and back in time to rediscover the virtues and striving of the ancestors of Taiwanese.
