WANG devotes himself to exploring the connection between video technology and theatre and importing a technology-influenced cultural landscape for contemporary theatre. Seeing us at the back-end of the postmodern wave, WANG tries to find out how artists and their audience are connected at all types of sites and what new roles artists need to take on. Through his collaboration with various directors and theatres, WANG is also searching for the value of the people and their changes among Taiwan’s current and mainstream Internet Generation.
