    Return to the international boundless theater and feel the laughter and wonderfulness!

    The Kaohsiung Spring Art Festival (KSAF), which will enter its 14th year in 2023, uses two images as the main vision this year. The seemingly familiar but incomplete worlds of "above sea level" and "below sea level" serve as the main visual scene of the year. The KSAF also uses "conch", which contains the sound of the sea, as its throughpoint, representing the transformation and inclusiveness of the performing arts based on various sounds. For the first time, the zodiac animal, rabbit, is placed in the main vision. In the New Year, we hope you are still safe and healthy and wish you a lucky year.

    After the lifting of the COVID-19 control, the theater is waving to the audience. After a year of preparation, the Grassland concert will present a total of 35 shows and 72 performances. Except for the Taiwanese teams, performers from Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Australia, Canada, Latvia and other countries will come to Kaohsiung, allowing the performing arts to return to the open flow before the pandemic. Performance venues include National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), Jhihde Hall, Cultural Center, Dadong Arts Center, Kaohsiung Experimental Theater, Pier-2 Art Center, the KMFA Grassland, with Farewell 886, Cultural Park of Taiwan Military Veteran Village and Fongyi Academy added.

    In addition to the famous music programs and operas produced by KSO and KCO, there are also two well-crafted parent-child concerts to provide a free time for children with various restrictions during the pandemic. The audience's favorite and vibrant Spring Art Theater and the annual Taiwanese Opera Joint Performance, which countless fans have been looking forward to, have been retained. This year, the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) is still a partner of KSAF. Weiwuying has also organized several international programs to give the audience more diverse choices.

    From the end of February to the middle of July, we will bring outstanding performing artists and technical teams from home and abroad to create many unforgettable experiences in Kaohsiung. Whether you are a loyal audience or a new friend, you are welcome to come back to the theater with KSAF to enjoy the laughter and wonderful experience!
