TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The National Theater and Concert Hall (NTCH) and Taiwanese director Fan Chung-chi's (樊宗錡) co-production, titled "Twelve Courses of Taiwanese Cuisine Song," began its tour last month and will end it on Saturday (Nov. 14) at NTCH plaza in the nation's capital.

The theatrical performance features Taiwanese traditional food and explores the connection between food and memory. It will also showcase Taiwan's "bando" (辦桌) banquet culture, according to NTCH.

NTCH stated that the show is part of the hall's annual charity program FormosART Tour, which is in its sixth year. This year's performance will be catered in the bando style, allowing the audience to enjoy the food and the show simultaneously.

The culture of bando thrived in the 1980s, with tables set on the street serving traditional food. Nowadays, the custom is more common in central and southern Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
