George Town Festival: pulu’em and Luna
July 22 @ 8:00 pm - September 23 @ 10:00 pm$70 – $90
In an enduring music and dance performance, pulu’em and Luna celebrate Taiwan’s indigenous artistry and vitality with masterful and evocative narratives inviting audiences on a journey of self and collective reflection. The performance starts with pulu’em by Sangpuy, a musician from Taiwan’s Pinayumayan tribe, who pays tribute to the cultural, natural, and spiritual heritage of Taiwan’s indigenous peoples with songs from his latest album ‘pulu’em’, along with his biggest hits and other soulful native tunes. The show continues with Luna, performed by the highly acclaimed Bulareyaung Dance Company (BDC). Their 2018 milestone production integrates contemporary dance with inspiration from the rituals and singing of the Bunun people, also listed as a cultural heritage in Taiwan. Together, pulu’em and Luna offer an otherworldly experience that transports audiences on an immersive journey of self-reflection in the beauty and calm of time, nature, and life.
