Video from Moe Chee performance in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 10 July 2015

This video captures most of a Moe Chee performance given in Taiwan in July. We began in Ruh Café before migrating with our audience across the road to Birthday Park. Fang-Yi and Feng-Chen Hseih were subtle guest artists.

It’s a very long video, but if you are willing to sit with it I think it gives a good representation of the mood and feel of the performance. If it helps, there is a cute cat in it as well.

On Sunday night, I ran the ‘Listen’ workshop at the Murder Ink book store in Taipei. The workshop was specifically for the cast and crew of the upcoming Taipei Fringe Festival production Cold Case Club, but was also open to others who booked as well. Chun-liang Liu kindly translated to Mandarin for me. I really enjoyed the evening and think the participants did as well.
