Taiwan’s National Theater and Concert Hall agreed April 19 to collaborate on artistic exchanges with France’s Chaillot—National Theater of Dance and Spain’s Mercat De Les Flors Dancehouse.

Under the three-year commitment, the three sides will work together in fostering a more globalized approach to performance design and delivery. This is to be achieved largely through arranging and supporting artist residency exchanges.

Liu Yi-ruu, executive and artistic director of NTCH, said the skills and talents of Taiwan’s performing artists are renowned worldwide. This explains why European partners like CNTD and MDLFD are interested in tie-ups aimed at creating mutually beneficial opportunities, she added.

Echoing Liu’s remarks, CNTD Director Didier Deschamps said the collaboration is a blue-ribbon opportunity to strengthen the bonds of creativity between artists in Taiwan and France.    [FULL  STORY]
