Hands-ART Proposal #1 : 
Paris Wild Plum Blossom Series by Tseng Chih-Wei

Taiwanese theatre artist Tseng Chih-Wei has worked with eight French theatre companies since 2016. Chih-Wei is now developing the “Paris Wild Plum Blossom Series” through the inspiration of his adventure in the city of romance. Struggling with love, livelihood, language barriers, cultural differences and identity issues, how can a young Asian biological male survive in this civil jungle?

To make this project happen,  we have launched a crowdfunding proposal with three innovative events:

I. Online Exhibition from May to July: Your Story, My Fantasy. Send Chih-Wei a picture of your window view along with its story, then he will sketch it.

II. Lecture Performance @ Hsin’Space in July: Join Chih-Wei’s journey of French-Taiwanese co-production projects. Discover what the surprises are and what challenges we face during international collaboration!

III. Theatre Show@ Thinkers’ Theatre in December: Combining theatre, dance, performance art, and exhibition, This show, as part of Chih-Wei’s Queer Body series, will explore love, gender and identity.

Under the current Covid-19 crisis,  theatre artist Tseng Chih-Wei is facing the same difficulties like other artists around the world: suspension of projects and cancelation of shows. However, he decides to  stay positive and take this unemployed period as a chance to develop his new creation “Paris Wild Plum Blossom Series”. Tseng Chih-Wei needs your participation and support to complete this project.
