TAIWANfest 2019: Riding the Waves with Vietnam
The ocean connects land. Stories connect cultures.
We can go from one land to another, but it’s much more difficult to discover the bridge between one culture and another.
Join us at TAIWANfest 2019 and explore the bridge that links cultures together - and uncover the elements that even the most different culture might share! Cross that bridge, and embark on a journey of history, flavours, and the arts, right here in Toronto!
Hear the seamless blend of Western and Chinese percussion music at “Stunning Virtuosity”, with Taiwan’s world-renowned Ju Percussion. Watch, taste, and learn about the bridges that food builds among people at “Friendship Kitchen” - prepare your apron and experience first-hand or join the crowd and see what happens when passionate chefs from across the world collide into culinary brilliance! Don’t worry if you don’t understand rock band Sorry Youth’s Taiwanese lyrics - you’ll feel the stories and emotions of Taiwan just by immersing yourself into their “Island Scream”! Be in for a surprise, as a truck morphs into the Taiwan Stage for robotic performers to dance under the dazzling neon lights. Put on your learning goggles like a food technician, and experiment with the savoury flavours of traditional soy sauce production at the “Soy Sauce Test”.
Come see for yourself with free admission at TAIWANfest 2019 at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre from August 23rd to 25th!
