TaipeiEYE is located in Taipei's Zhongshan District, on Zhongshan North Road, Section 2, No.113. In 1915, Mr. Koo Xian-Rong, bought Dadaocheng's "Tamsui Theatre" and after renovations, renamed it "Taiwan New Stage". Both Fujianese and local Taiwanese opera troupes were invited, and together, Taipei's first traditional Chinese performing arts venue was formed. Later on, when Taiwan became Japan's colony, it suffered bombings from the U.S. and the venue was razed to ruins. In 2002, world-class architect Mr. Guo Mao-Lin, carefully designed a grey marble building, the Taini Building, for the Taiwan Cement Corporation. In 2004, the C.F. Koo Foundation established "TaipeiEYE" in the hall of Taini Building. It's an artistic and cultural venue filled with history. Programs are held every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. The programs include traditional Taiwanese theater, such as glove puppetry, puppet shows, Beijing opera, folk arts, acrobatics, folk music (Nanguan, Beiguan, Bayin, etc..), aboriginal music and dances, folk musical theater, as well as Chinese opera (gezaixi, which improved on Beijing opera's dance steps and techniques), Kunqu opera, lion dances, and other folk arts. You can enjoy an rich abundance of visual sights, in addition to sounds, smells, touches, and even tastes here. The perfomers will also interact with the audience both in and outside of performances, including make-up viewing areas and photography areas. The performances are all subtitled in Chinese, Japanese, English, and Korean. There's even staff members who are proficient in these languages who are available on sight to help satisfy your needs and enhance your cultural experience.
