Formosa, the beautiful island of Taiwan, has received abundant blessings from Gods and has created rich cultures. One of which is the 24 solar terms that dictate people’s daily life. In this performance, you will see the 3 most significant solar terms; the Beginning of Spring, the Waking of Insects and the Spring Equinox protrayed by the Taiwanese martial arts and dragon dance.
