Launched in 2014, Taiwan Season has maintained its status as an increasingly ‘hot tip’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe because of the high-quality dance, theatre and live performance it showcases. In more recent, Covid-era times it also garnered attention for its enterprising – and award-winning – online presence.  
Presented under the umbrella title A Glimpse of Taiwan, this year’s roster of carefully-chosen productions runs a gamut from full-on contemporary dance (See You) and thoughtfully stylised dance-theatre (The Whisper of the Waves) to cross-art form experimentation (TOMATO) and circus-style, multi-media spectacle (Light of Life). The four shows can be seen "in person" at Taiwan Season’s valued partner venues Summerhall or Dance Base or, in a welcome new partnership, Assembly.
Alongside these performances, Taiwan Season Symposium: Connecting with Taiwan is proud to offer three 90-minute discussions focused, respectively, on performance and technology; opportunities for female artists; and practical approaches to creativity and climate change. The first two sessions will occur both in-person (at Dance Base) and online on August 15, while the final session is a live event (presented in collaboration with the Danish Arts Foundation at Fringe Central) on August 16.
