Paper Windmill Theatre was founded in 1992 by a group of art workers with the vision that "children need children's theater, and Taiwan needs Taiwan's own children's theater." Using a variety of theater design elements, a realistic yet dreamy space tailored for children was created. The theater company has performed at Taiwan's National Theater, various local theaters, outdoor spaces, and middle schools and elementary schools. To date, it has completed nearly 6,000 performances that have been enjoyed by more than 13 million viewers!

"Wu Song Fights a Tiger" that is being taken to Luye Township of Taitung County is inspired by the story in classical Chinese literature. In the form of children's theater, the traditional story is transformed into a modern musical where Chinese opera martial arts and acrobatics have been incorporated into the dance, and the rhythm of Shulaibao becomes a part of popular music and dance. The audience will be fully immersed in the joyful atmosphere, and at the same time, the key messages of "kindness," "sacrifice oneself to save others," and "help others to uphold justice" are being communicated to children.



Besides the wonderful theatrical performance, Luye Township Sports Association and Longtian Community Development Association of Luye, Taitung will hold the "Healthy and Happy Life Carnival" in Longtian Paragliding Landing Field from 1:00 to 4:30 pm on September 30, 2023. There will be a farmer's market selling local produce and dance performances that visitors to Luye will fully enjoy. The Mid-Autumn Festival holidays will be the perfect time to take your family to Hualien and Taitung. Consider visiting Luye where children will make a lot of unforgettable happy memories!
