Hung Tung's Fantasy

IN Program

Circo

Self-taught Taiwanese painter, Hung Tung is famous for his fantastical representation of the everyday Taiwanese experience in the Sixties and Seventies. His signature vibrant colors and strong lines depict the burdens and desires at the depth of the human hearts.

Inspired by this Taiwanese master’s works, Thunar Circus‘s multimedia production captures his style that’s at once unpretentious, whimsical, and futuristic. The contemporary circus performance is complements by puppetry, shadow play, gezaixi or “taiwanese opera,” and electronic music. The show not only brings Hung’s paintings to life but connects to 21st-century Taiwanese society. The result is a dreamlike spectacle that will take you on a journey through the past and the present.

Thunar Circus’ is an unlimited free space. In these multiple faces, we experiment and explore the contemporary circus art. ‘Thunar’ is an unlimited life. All of our actions are connected with our culture in order to let our acrobatics represent the humanity. ‘Thunar’ is also a collective space. Through sharing the works of the contemporary circus art, artists and audiences link together. The image of poem is the power for thinking about the society.
