Taipei, May 1 (CNA) Several cultural events have been planned in Taiwan for over the Labor Day weekend, both online and in the real world, as organizers contemplate appropriate ways to stay connected with audiences amid the COVID-19 conoravirus pandemic.

The National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) in the southern city opened on Friday a month-long exhibition titled "Eureka! 2.0 Rediscovering Weiwuying," which uses text, images, videos and performance props to convey the idea that "life is theater."

According to Weiwuying, the event showcases the four-year collaboration between the Kaohsiung venue and the Prague Quadrennial of stage design. It will also include free outdoor performances on the afternoons of May 8 and 9.

Weiwuying General and Artistic Director Chien Wen-pin (簡文彬) told CNA Thursday that it has a vast covered outdoor space for events and has seen a slow increase of visitors since last weekend.
