Pride Voices: New Plays from Taiwan by contemporary playwrights Li-Ying Chien and Pao-Chang Tsai

pride_voices

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York invites literature enthusiasts to excerpted readings from The Possible Memoirs of a Traitor by Li-Ying Chien (directed by Knud Adams) and Solo Date by Pao-Chang Tsai (directed and performed by Tsai; dramaturgy by Soriya Chum), and a panel discussion starting at 6:30 pm on June 26 at Segal Theatre.

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, Chien and Tsai shed light on the struggles and achievements of the LGBTQ community in Taiwan and Asia today through their creative processes and cultural productions.

Co-curated by Yu Chien Liu (Martin E. Segal Theatre Center) and Chi-Ping Yen (Taipei Cultural Center in New York), with support from the Ministry of Culture, ROC (Taiwan) and the Taipei Cultural Center in New York.

Tuesday, June 26, 6:30pm Readings + Discussion
Segal Theatre | 365 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016
