[98th Cruise Report]Experience Taiwanese Traditional Temple Culture

June.2nd

Tonight was the final performance of Taiwanese Theatre Company Natajintogekibou. They performed many times on board and taught many cultural classes, including Taiwanese Taiko, experiencing Lion Dance, and Electric-Techno San Tai ZI Dance. All the participants – no matter from which country they came from – enjoyed their performances and classes.

In their last performance they brought us Ba Jia Jiang. They ended the show with a bang!

The group leader, Mr. Gao Yuan Han described Taiwanese temple performances as just like a Chinese Disneyland. Disney has Snow White, and the Little Mermaid, but we have Lion and Dragon Dance, and Electric-Techno San Tai ZI.

Natajintogekibou has been on board for more than 20 days. They interacted with many participants and let everyone experience Taiwanese culture though practices and performances.
