The Wacky Water Show: Strangest Show Ever (video)
Taipei International Flora Exposition
Long before plants, long before animals, long before human beings, there was water.
Always the same water travels on the planet, from the ground to the sky, between earth and clouds, amongst oceans and lands. It runs through us just like through our ancestors. What it tells us patiently, like all the myths we have in mind about Nature, is nothing but our stories.
Video: Water Story
Thus, here in this park, each evening at the same time, a little piece of this water memory will be revealed out of the Grand Basin, a performance coming along with the water, a story drawn by itself.
A poet, a Lady in black and 29 young people will be waiting for you at dark by the mirror of lights, bringing you beyond the centuries with fishermen, peasants, workers and all kinds of people while the world keeps on moving. You will see water burning, pineapple island, aquatic bicycles, cannibal couch and a desperate baseball player.
Water Story is an incredible dream of life on water, which becomes possible if not by magic, a dream that we recognize as Taiwan.
