Taiwan art troupes have been praised at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after wowing audiences with innovative artistic performances, the Ministry of Culture said Aug. 22.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Taiwan artists have participated in the festival. The pieces being performed this year are modern dance programs “Together Alone” by Lee Chen-wei and Art B&B and “038” by Kuo-shin Chuang Pangcah Dance Theatre; “The Backyard Story” by Puppet Beings Theatre; and two works of dramatic theater, “Heart of Darkness” by Sun Son Theatre and “Never Ever” by Co-coism.

Performed by Lee and Zoltan Vakulya of Hungary, “Together Alone” has been shortlisted for the Total Theatre and The Place Award for Dance, an accolade presented by U.K.-based Total Theatre Magazine in recognition of outstanding artistic achievement. Every showing has been sold out, the MOC said, adding that audience members have included honored guests such as French Ambassador to the U.K. Sylvie Berman and French Consul General in Scotland Emmanuel Cocher.
