Central Taiwan Pass

Welcome to Taiwan.I love to travel,love wandering around Taiwan.
When you hear Chiayi County, what’s the first thing you think of?I am in Chiayi.
Not only is Chiayi the only county in Taiwan with three national scenic areas, it’s the home of a city known worldwide for its verdant surroundings.
Here is not only a lovely park,but also the Chiayi Performing Arts Center!The Chiayi Performing Arts Center opened in 2004, This isn’t just a theatre to take in performances, it’s also a favorite place for locals to just come and relax.Looking at this elegant space framed by a pavilion and covered walkway, Actually, this is Chiayi's center of artistic talent.We hope to make it more connection with our hometown, to develop more local culture.
The international-grade exhibition and performance spaces and equipment let audiences enjoy the thrill of good art in comfortable surroundings while providing a place for high-level arts groups to stay in residence. The resulting collaborations are unique to Chiayi County.
Now, take a guess what characters I bumped into at the Performing Arts Center!
Let me introduce you, my new friend.I am the Peacock King of Wisdom.All of these richly detailed puppets were made by Samadhi, another group in residence at the center. But unlike traditional puppets, which are quite small, each puppet made by Samadhi is over 1 meter in size!
This is “Lotus Area”! This is “Butterfly stage”! This is “Theatre”!
How to control this puppet.
To control the puppet the most important is the hand and the head and her eyes
May I try?Ok, of course.Recently the’ve been planning to shoot a short film about traditional glove puppet theatre, and the Performing Arts Center, with its beautiful surroundings, is the perfect setting for them!
After my amazing trip to the Chiayi Performing Arts Center, I noticed a nearby farm with plenty of greenery and an air of culture – the Minxiong Kumquat Factory.
From 1960 through the present day, three generations of the same family have poured their livelihoods into kumquat products, and have carefully preserved their estate as a cultural museum.Here, you can also make your own kumquat sauce!
I think I can finish loaves of bread with this sauce.
Seeing me smiling through my day in Chiayi, aren’t you itching to make a visit of your own? I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Ciao ~

 

民雄藝文小旅行(嘉義)

歡迎來到台灣,我熱愛旅行,也喜歡在台灣趴趴走。
提到嘉義,你第一個想到的是什麼?我在嘉義。
其實,嘉義縣除了是台灣唯一擁有三大國家風景區的縣份之外,它也正以田園城市的風貌向全世界。這裡不僅是一處美麗的公園,這裡也是嘉義縣表演藝術中心!嘉義縣表演藝術中心成立於2004年,這裡除了提供藝文展演外,也是當地人休憩的最佳場所。看到這一處由亭台閣樓、水榭迴廊交織成的優雅空間,然而,這裡是嘉義凝聚藝術能量的殿堂。
我們希望多結合,嘉義在地的元素,發展更多的在地文化。國際水準的,展演場地與配備,讓觀眾能舒適的享受,展演時帶來的感動,也讓優秀的表演團隊,進駐,共創屬於嘉義縣特有的藝術表演。接下來,猜猜我在表演中心碰到了哪一號人物?讓我來為大家介紹,我的新朋友。我乃孔雀明王。
這一尊尊製作精緻華麗的戲偶,全出自「三昧堂」,是藝術中心另一個駐館團隊。有別於傳統戲偶的嬌小,三昧堂所創造的每一尊人偶都是高達100多公分的巨偶。
這裡是「蓮花池」,這裡是「蝴蝶劇場」,這裡是「演藝廳」。
這布袋戲偶如何操作?控制布袋戲偶最重要的是掌握手,頭,和眼睛的操作
我能試試嗎?當然可以!他們最近正在籌劃拍攝以布袋戲為主題的微電影,而環境優美的表演藝術中心,就是他們最棒的取景場地。
結束了令人驚艷的藝術文化之旅,我探尋到有一農莊,充滿綠意與文化氣息,民雄金桔觀光工廠。打從1960年創業至之今,三代經營者對於金桔產品的堅持與生活的點滴,也以文化館的方式完整保存著。此外,在這裡,還能體驗自製金桔果醬!我想能用這個醬吃好幾塊麵包。
我在嘉義充滿笑容的一天,是不是讓你也想來這裡了呢?我是林柏妤,享受在台灣的時光,我們下次見!
