By learning the tribal songs, the
participants get to express their sense
of belonging towards their habitat, the
nature and the land.
In this workshop, by means of
cultural exchange between the two
shores, the participants will experience
the spirit of tribal singing. They will
learn about the rules, the rhythm, the
emotions and improvise the songs
together, to have an understanding of
the tribal people's terminology and

About Asian Theatre 5-Year
In the natural world, there is a phenomenon: When a
plant survives on its own, it seems small and pale.
And when it lives amongst other plants, it thrives
and flourishes. People call this kind of
interdependence in the botanical world ‘symbiosis.’
In fact, in the human world, this also happens in
communities and is a common phenomenon. Symbiosis
happens in nature as well as in societies. In this
system, any one party benefits from it much more
than being alone, thus the equation “1+1>2.”
From 2018, Theatre Horizon plans to use 5 years’
time to search in Mainland China, Macao, Taiwan,
Japan and South Korea for young and vibrant theatre
groups with potentials to establish an Asian theatre
symbiotic system to influence each other.

An Amis of Taiwan,
former U-Theatre performer, Lin has been involved in
the performing arts for over 20 years. Apart from
having solid physical training for theatre, she also
works in theatre, movement and songwriting. Lin was
brought up in the city. Feeling severed from her
cultural roots, she started to trace back to them
with her songs and by living amongst the tribal
elders. She also travelled to the Himalayas
and to the Malaysian islands to visit the
indigenous tribes to learn their songs. When she
returned to Hualian, she recorded her conversations
with the old villagers, learning the traditional
arts in order to find her lost roots.
