【 演出簡介 | About the Performance 】
The opening performance of this semester's art residency stages Taiwanese traditional folk singing artist TSENG Po-Hao. Aligning with the creative theme "This Place Called Home," Tseng will be performing four songs that portray the circumstances of different families based on the stories of the artist's friends. Two of the songs depict the challenges of foreign spouses living in Taiwan, such as being away from their homeland and cultural differences, as well as becoming single parents, and transform these hardships into music in the form of Hengchun folksongs. The two other works are new productions that describe the cross-national family life of two youngsters who must accommodate life in a foreign land due to their parents' international marriage but are later separated from their families for the purpose of receiving education. After interviewing the two youngsters, Tseng adapts their experiences into song and presents their cross-national family experiences through music.

Born in Kaohsiung in 1991 and grew up in Tainan.
TSENG started learning Chinese musical instruments and music at a young age and encountered art and traditional Taiwanese music during university. In recent years, TSENG has participated in theater and collaborated in instrument and singing performances with Assignment Theatre, Against-Again Troupe, and Kocyonanten Butoh Dance Group. TSENG has also participated in various improvised performances and performed alongside musicians such as UCHIHASHI Kazuhisa, LEE Shih-Yang, Immanuel Danennbring, CHANG Hei-Sheng, SAKAMOTO Hiromichi, LI Tzi-Mei, and free improvisation group I Am Not Yours（CHINO Shuichi, LIN Hui-Chun, and Marie）, and Lan Cao + Gregor Siedl. TSENG's recent creative endeavors are wanderings in music, attempting to understand the concept of "presence" in performances. TSENG's Ghost Forum Project explores the problem of multiple narratives and the colonial situation during the resistance against Japan, while his music works are mostly related to social issues and personal sentiments.
