Interactive New Media Theater SAYION I 即時互動多媒體劇場《路》

SAYION a Taiwanese aboriginal young lady. Her sudden death made her a legend overnight. Her accident was played up by the Japanese government, which occupied Taiwan at that time, as a patriotic sacrifice. Songs have been written and movies have been made about this story. The late president of Taishin Holdings, Keh-Hsiao Lin, was obsessed with this tale. He investigated it in detail, recording his experiences in a moving book. The Interactive New Media theatrical production SAYION I will retell her story. It will lead you on a wonderful journey and perhaps in so doing, one may better comprehend his/her own path.   As the Music Director, my selections include western classical music and eastern modern music.  Combining traditional and contemporary works, this cross-art experience will empower the latest technologies to bring a vivid unprecedented sensory impact.

We are using a high tech motion capture system that is similar to the one used in the film “Avatar”. In our SAYION I, we use this technology to capture our dancer and actors’  movements in real time to display graphical imagery and multimedia art into the background of the stage.  The real-time process felt like a roller coaster!  A gleeful dynamic and exciting ride! And I quote from the show : “Romance road is naturally rough. Was it love or destiny that bind us so? Even we know the outcome in advance. You can’t possibly escape I can’t possibly neither. How can we see it through?Oh Sayion…
