Waiting for what!?

Tuan Tuan, “ It’s quite late. Why haven’t we got our paste? ”
Yuan Yuan, “ Then let’s just escape from prison! ”
Because they couldn't wait till the paste sent by the zoo keeper… because they have watched the latest episode of an American sitcom… because they feel like bitching the out-of-date koalas…and because they couldn’t fall asleep that they would like to pay tribute to Beckett (You with!) Therefore, the two pandas decide to escape from the zoo together!

Most Creative Award

Blue John

It is a love story about the “speechless romance” between a talk show girl and a severely stuttering boy. Though the ecstasy and anxiety pervading the atmosphere in the Taipei city, they grow their connection firmly…with a saxophone.
Shuttling between the fairy tale like scenes and the mock of the status quo, even the story teller lost herself in the end of this labyrinth of narrative.

Performing Artists / A-Cross

Let Arts Cross Everyone's Life!
"Music drama" is not a drama, not music, but contemporary and traditional cultural reproduction staggered. A-Cross will be a refreshing way of performance to challenge the boundaries of music and drama, bringing the audience to meet the auditory and visual feast.

Most Creative Award


The average temperature keeps rising; the glacier in Antarctica is rapidly melting.
For surviving, they work as if there’s no tomorrow.
For one specific dream, they give it all.
For one piece of ice, they are fighting the reality.

Come to my place and I will cook for you, then you can see our way of life.

Best Courage Award

When it rains noisily, we see the color of pupils from each other

We try to cut open the body like doctors do
The skull dissected, the brain taken out
Examining here and there to find the words
Pluck off the eyes, the angle of our vision
Murmurs swing in that half-open mouth
And the twisted limbs endeavor to say something
While all the other organs stay silent as nothing
Every piece of the hotchpotch in the stomach
Rushes out to perform its best in turn spontaneously
With your eyes please tell anatomized us
The least obscure and the most authentic

Performing Artists / Holistic High School

At the juvenile age before adulthood.
We’re beginning to grow up and learn to be strong.
We’re opening our eyes wide to search for a stage.
On which to show the most primitive and honest face of our own.
Even though it rains noisily as ever.
We’re asked to fix our eyes upon each other.
So as to see the subtle twinkling color.
From the pupils of each other.
