'Writer’s Block: Old Saybrook' Woody Allen

Taipei National University of the Arts Spring Performance TNUA Experimental Theater March. 2012


The story Black comedy " 一吻勾銷 " translated from the stage play "Old Saybrook" by Woody Allen. He explores the relationship between husband and wife with living dialogue by three couples; investigates the interaction above the inner desire. He uses the absurd and ironic language to exaggerate the interpretation of the real feeling which is easy to be ignored in daily life. We could see the marital problems by the conversation and debate on the secret diary with the three couples. The diary is about the affair between Sheila's husband Norman and her sister Jane. The story becomes understandable when playwright Max appeared and breakdown the truth" In fact, the role is just the role." To explain, except Hall and his wife are real people, the other two couples are fictional characters .

'Electronic City' The performance of the Director course TNUA T305 Experimenttal Theater June. 2012


The story Falk Richter's "Electronic City" is a fairytale set in the technology media era. The story takes place in an electronic city, a global city, a city which is dominated by an ubiquitous service sector. The electronic city needs people who can adapt to it and continue to live in the digital era.

Lighting logic There are two obivous autompsphere to represant the digital (bule and green) and real human being world (white). I use green and blue to show the digital by my intuition and those imagination . white as human being, because the city people who is controlled by the same daily routine makes me think of prisons.


The reference to the digital world.

The opening, robots (digital world) start to swallow the whole world.


The reference of the real human being who is controlled.


the human was being watched over (controlled) by technology.


the ending of story, people is still in the same situation.

'A Poem Revolves the Universe' Our Theater

Cihayi Performing Center March. 2013


The story about Every beautiful thing could be transformed into a peom, depends on how you think of it. This poem is combined with many true stories form each actors. Just like there are so many different life stories exist in this world, each one connected to the other, so, that's why we call "revolves the universe".

Lighting logic I was trying to build the realistic scene for each space (poem), according to the story teller and my imagination. Moreover, I used the UV-light to represent the hidden meaning of the numerous stories.


When two phones connected, I concretize the situation..


It's in the character's dream, battling. It makes me think of Japanese cartoon's effect.


the cabin in the ship. actors walked in the corridor.


people protest against the goverment.


At the end, I turned off all light , leaving only the UV-light on. The hidden pigment appear, just like the hidden beauty finally being appreacited.


'Skyline III' Our Theater

Cihayi Performing Center,TW. / Xiamen Cutral Center,China March. 2013


The story about "Flying through the Soul,Traveling to the memorial" This story starts from a traveling by plane, which crashes at the end. A metaphor of every life like travel will go to some point, could be called " the death". Nevertheless, we have no idea about what happens afterward. In the play, the two roles constantly having conversation with a humorous tone. Traveling is like the life reviewing, the final answer of the life and the traveling are both mysteries. However, it will be a successful return to the starting point.

Lighting logic I was trying to recall the memories and feeling during my travel experiences. the long shadow, the sound from the street, the temperature...everything. I feel lonely a lot, but it was not a bad feeling, though sencetive enough to make me noice any detail I saw.


Long shadow. I use a lot this feature in this play. beause of its moment make me strongly feel where am I.


The temperature, color, and atmosphere.


Reference the dancing scene


The airplane crash the last part of the story, the airplane crash occurs.


Reference the crashing


The main character is telling the story of Little prince. the traveler might go a lot further than they have planned. It could be somewhere in the universe. and I minic the universe on the satge I imagine.


The end of traveling, things go back to the original point, like going back home. " the original point" could be anything, so I designed that no color, no special effect in order not to infulence audiences' imagination of the result , and what they gain from this experience.

Gradually, people inhabit the mountain area, owing to the lack of spaces on plains and the better residential conditions. Ecologically, there are some principals concerned when planning and developing the mountain areas for dwelling, including the soil and water conservation, microclimate and residential pattern of human beings.

The IEV (Invisible Eco-Village) residential environment is designed not only for the area itself but also for the viewers from outside. It is invisible so that it maintains the original landscape of the site. Each building is a 20 floors apartment block spreading over the site, and between each other, the different heights exists according to the terrain. By principally designing the top parts of the buildings, that is to say arraying different functional elements, a superior living environment is created. wind passage

Competition 2011 "Array" Award: top13 Ya-ting, Chiu Shiu-pai, Su Ya-cheng, Lai


The model of theater Multifunctional Art Center Taipei, Taiwan

This theater is experimental one I tried to build in a uncompleted multi-functional arts center, which is an architecture student’s project. I want to create a new way of viewing. In simple terms, people can watch the situation when they pass by the theater unintentionally. “watching a play”becomes another unconscious and real play simultaneously. Genuine actors on the stage of the theater are a conscious actor also unconscious actor. The audience at this time is the audience of plays also a performer of this unconscious play. If it is feasible in technological technique, this will be a very interesting interaction.
