Ceci n’est pas une ambassade (Made in Taiwan)

For several decades, Taiwan has been living in a fragile status quo. Claimed by China, the island, which has its own government and institutions, dreams of independence. But faced with the world’s second-largest power, how do you exist without risking extinction? By bringing together the contrasting and committed views of a digital activist, a former diplomat, and a musician heiress to a bubble tea company, Stefan Kaegi imagines a utopia that only the theatre can provide: creating an embassy on stage.
