Community of Shadows in Taipei

This community workshop moved quickly from a presentation about Shadow Liberation into an interactive experiment in shadow theatre. Small groups developed shadow skits about various manifestations of gender oppression in Taiwanese society.

What does a shadow theatre remix of gender stereotypes from the Taiwanese media look like? I saw a pair of scissors popping overinflated balloon breasts behind the shadow screen.

As with my other work in Taipei, this workshop was hosted by the creative Story Encounter.
