Moonlight Sea Concerts Calling for Performers
‘The Next Wave’
The 167 kilometer stretch of land between Hualien City and Taitung City is a coastline bordered by a mountain range overlooking the Pacific on Taiwan’s East Coast. Such a long and narrow space between the mountains and the sea is home to many ethnic and language groups. Its fluid cultural diversity creates a unique symbiotic relationship, as well as a flourishing ocean orientated culture.
Each Moonlight Sea Concert is held to showcase the various features of the East Coast Land Arts Festival. Past concerts have attracted over ten thousand people with highly recognized award-winning performers. Due to the increased popularity of the Moonlight Sea Concerts, many performers have recommended themselves and expressed interest to show their talents at the concerts. Therefore, “The Next Wave” was chosen as the theme of this year by the organizer of Moonlight Sea concert, calling for suitable performers and artists in the fields of music, dance, and theater. The symbiotic relationships and lively aesthetics brought together by ocean waves will be presented in the first Moonlight Sea concert of September.
All selected groups will be supported with professional technicians, equipment, thousands of captivated attendees on-site, as well as be integrated with Moonlight Sea’s marketing campaign to present the wholesome beauty of Taiwan’s East Coast through music and space, across various natural and cultural landscapes.
