Formosa Circus Art (FOCA) breaks through the limitations of traditional circus forms, combining acrobatic stunts with modern dance and live theater, to create a unique stage presence for the audience. With years of local and international touring experience, the troupe is always taking its performance somewhere new and has quickly become one of the hottest tickets at various festivals in Asia and Europe. This May, they are set to make their U.S. debut touring multiple cities in celebration of the 2016 Taiwanese American Heritage Week.

Brought to you by the Taiwanese Association of Greater Portland, the 12-person group hailing from Taiwan will put on a special one-night-only performance at the Winningstad Theater on 5/10. As the troupe's name implies, FOCA prides themselves on promoting the diversified and rich culture of Taiwan, where their cultural experience and memories took root. The show will feature a variety of art forms including acrobatics, stunts, street dance, juggling, drumming, martial arts and extreme endurance.

「希望有天,世界會看到台灣也有屬於自己的馬戲團。」

由大波特蘭台灣同鄉會承辦之年度盛事:台灣傳統週(Taiwanese American Heritage Week)藝文團體展演,將於五月十日(週二)登場。今年(2016)特別邀請剛於德累斯頓(Dresden)第十一屆森帕歌劇院舞會(Semper Opera Ball)演出的台灣特技劇團:福爾摩沙馬戲團前來波特蘭演出。

福爾摩沙馬戲團集結各領域表演藝術人才,包含:特技、舞蹈、戲劇,以不同方式媒合各類表演形態。結合傳統與創新、特技及舞蹈、街頭文化及劇場藝術作品,自由地呈現本身的意志。沒有傳統的負擔與包袱,利用不同的嘗試,追求形式與概念的創造,發展獨特的肢體語彙,開創全新的視野。在玩耍中開發無限可能性,以真誠的態度,認真的嬉戲,吸引觀眾投入,探索表演和觀看的關係。曾受邀於法國亞維儂(Avignon)藝術節(Festival Villeneuve en Scene)及法國奧貝奈(Obernai)國際馬戲節(Festival Pisteurs d'Etoiles)演出;並於去年(2015)代表臺灣前往英國愛丁堡藝穗節(Edinburgh Festival Fringe)、柬埔寨國際馬戲節(Tini Tinou Circus Festival)演出,當地媒體(HeraldScotland)讚譽其有別於傳統喧嘩寵眾的手法,將平凡日常生活所見的事物,賦予成獨樹一格的馬戲團饗宴。

此次演出將街舞、雜技、旗鼓陣、特技、極限體能、扯鈴、武術、水晶球、傳統與創新、特技及舞蹈、街頭文化及劇場藝術等不同元素結合台灣傳統週之精神,透過平行線的交會來重新詮釋臺灣傳統特技文化。
