Founded in 1993, Golden Bough Theatre's work combines modern theatrical concept with popular culture and powerful energy - looking sometimes like kitsch while empowering with subversive strength - in search of an original Taiwanese theatre art form. Inspired by life experience, its work often charms the audience with local savor, which typifies colorful, raffish and flashy style. Golden Bough.
