Taiwanese International Youth Ambassador Performance Lights up Bliss

Tonight, starting at seven at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts, a group of sixteen art students from Taiwan will take to the stage for the 2015 Taiwanese International Youth Ambassador Performance. The performers in Belize are part of a larger group of one hundred and sixty students that have been deployed to countries around the globe as ambassadors of the Taiwanese culture through the creative arts. The performances tonight will feature dance, music, song and drama. News Five spoke with two of the performers, who say that the creative art transcends language barriers.

“The main focus, the main goal of this project is to let the world see Taiwan and also let the youth of Taiwan see the world. Taiwan is very small, it’s a tiny island next to China and so it is a very good opportunity for us to get out and see everything.”

 

Duane Moody

“It’s more about the cultural experience and the cultural exchange. Talk to us about some of the presentations that you guys will be doing for the event.”
