COVER STORY


2019 NTPC Children’s Art Festival - Futuristic Monsterland

 

 

     

 

 

 

The 2019 New Taipei City Children’s Art Festival will take you to the “Futuristic Monsterland.” Not only will you be visiting the outer space station and a futuristic park, you will also be treated to the creative works of top-rate local and international artists and performance troupes. Make sure you don’t miss out!

 

Spanish E-Flow Powers the Paper Windmill

 

For ten consecutive days, you will be regaled with memorable busker performances. We will meet, for the first time, the six 4-m high giant puppets brought by Big Dancers, who are known for their exciting street performance back in Spain. These puppets, loved for

their colorful outfit made with light, will bring the energy and excitement of a street party through their dance and music, and inspire the performer in you.

Paper Windmill, the most notable Taiwanese theater for children, brings “The Witchery World,” a program that comprises five types of mise-en-scene, including drama, dance, multimedia, black light and puppetry. A mysterious feel of the witches’ world is thus created, hence the message that “love” is the origin of all civilization. In addition, you will get to see ten more excellent pieces of children’s drama, including “Little Assistant” by Feng Shen Bao Bao and the circus of FOCA.

 

 

     

 

Travelling Museums Celebrate Community Flair

 

Yingge Ceramic Museum invites you to piece together the “Ceramic Jigsaw” they developed through the 3D technology. Tamsui Heritage Museum takes you back to the battlefield and the thrill of warfare of Franco- Sino War with building blocks and drawings. Visitors will get a glimpse into the life of prehistoric Taiwanese as they rock to the rustic rhythm, prayer and interactive activities organized by the Shisanghang Museum. The Gold Museum has launched their unique goldmine trip, and the time machine will take you back to the mining town for an entire day. In Pinglin, the Tea Museum will turn you into a delicate tea bag, and experience the pleasure of alterative “teamaking.” The Lin Family Mansion and Gardens is a living museum of traditional building material and structure. Their program will inspire you with the wisdom of our ancestors.

 

Let’s Parade with the Monsters!

The masquerade this year has been given a makeover! Apart from the new route, we will, for the first time, ask you to parade with all performers on the day of the parade. You will join the riot with all the monsters along with more than 20 topmost performance groups, such as Energy Dance Ensemble, Oriental Dance Huyn, Huagogo and Bloco Força!
