The country’s strength in art is also evidenced by the fact that three performance groups—Against Again Troupe, Anarchy Dance Theatre and EX-Theatre Asia—have been invited to perform at the WSD festival, he said.

Initiated by the OISTAT, the quadrennial WSD is the only global competition and exhibition for individual stage designers in such areas as architecture, costume, installation, lighting, multi-media, performance design, puppetry, set and sound.

Ex-Theatre Asia is a cross-cultural theatre company based in rural Taiwan, which carries out a perfect combination of Taiwanese and Indian cultural authenticity. A True Calling, will be part of the opening shows.

The collaboration between Anarchy Dance Theatre and the multi-media company UltraCombos began in 2011, and hence the birth of the interactive multi-media dance project, Seventh Sense. Bringing their innovative and electrifying performance, they are also invited to be part of the opening shows in WSD2013.

Be part of the Design as Performance program in the Scenofest, the unmanned theatre work, All that’s left to happen is some deaths (my own included) by Against Again Troupe will create an originative and vibrant atmosphere and theatre experience to the audiences.
