Film-Screening, The Immortal's Play and followed by a conversation with Yuchin Chen, Taiwanese Writer

This event is a part of the "Life on the Move: Identities and Experiences of Transnational Migrants in Taiwan." 


Annie has aspired to be a star of Vietnamese opera since her tender age, but she turned out to be a star in the National Circus of Vietnam. Married to the leader of the Chiayi-based Shin-Li-Mei Taiwanese Opera Troupe, she spent considerable time acquiring new languages and finally made herself the female lead in the troupe.  However, the Taiwanese opera is declining now, can Annie, a new migrant of Taiwan, perserve this traditional performance that honors the gods? Will Annie's "new" Taiwanese identity become a hindrance of promoting and preserving the "traditional" Taiwanese opera?
