The goddess of the sea invites you to a dazzling circus spectacle celebrating the vitality of the Taiwanese as an imaginative oceanic people.

Loaded with vivid sights and atmospheric sounds, Diabolo Dance Theatre’s unique show is a multi-media fantasy revolving around the diabolo – a spinning toy central to Taiwanese culture. Feats of grace and daring punctuate a narrative that plays powerfully with the four elements.

Full of seductively swirling colours and a constant flow of motion, and set to a cinematic yet soulful soundtrack featuring live indigenous vocals, this is all-ages entertainment for the ages!
