To raise funds towards typhoon relief efforts in Taiwan, local food and performing artisans will join forces with Taiwanese artists for an evening of art, sound, live music and dance. The event will feature an one-night-only exhibit of visual and sound art installation works by Taiwan-based artists responding to the typhoon.
Dzian! will present a live set of Nakashi-inspired surf and garage rock music and dance evoking Taiwanese burlesque circa 1960s-80s. The program will also feature a set of live TPOP (Taiwanese pop) performance and "Taike" dance. All the performances are supported by members of HzCollective, WeArts, Taiwanese Student Association and the McIntire Department of Music Department at the University of Virginia. Li Chen of Cafe 88 will provide Taiwanese snacks and delicacies.
All proceeds from the event will go to Children Welfare League Foundation of Taiwan [http://www.children.org.tw/] toward their typhoon Morakot relief efforts for the affected children and families.
The event will be streamed live on the Internet. Stay tuned for details.
