Social Media & Blogs
I am a theatre practitioner from Tainan, Taiwan. After being inspired by “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” and “Theater of the Oppressed” in 2006, I devoted myself to work with all-ages of communities/NGOs/schools through theater. I work to make theatre as a transformative laboratory of social dialogue. My main focus is art practice, cultural activism, critical research and participatory methods. So, I participate in networks of social movement, community-building, civil education and deliberative democracy. I have co-founded three community theatre groups, a human rights group, a local labor co-operative. I got my master’s degree in “Graduate Institute of Interdisciplinary Art.” And I worked with Korean and Indian activist groups in 2008 and 2013. My journey in “2016-2017 The International Class” helped make me highly aware of the power of the collective progress of building and the radical meaning of creativity. Currently, I work with a different intention on group dynamic process to broaden my political senses of the human develop possibilities.
