038 will not be performed on Mondays.
Titled after the area code for Haulien on Taiwan’s East coast, home of the indigenous Pangcah people, 038 asks ‘Where is home? What is home?’
Is it the ease we feel, seeing pictures on the projector screen and hearing tribal songs on the stereo? Or is it in the endless march of modernity?
Contemporary but underpinned by traditional spirit, 038 reflects the anxieties and uncertainties of coming home in search of ourselves and our roots.
