Two travelers—one from Denmark, the other from Keelung, Taiwan—meet after faring light years in the void of space and time, and traverse through the memories of their childhood, moments that they don't want to let go, yet will soon dissolve into the deep sea of oblivion.

After its premiere at the 2018 Taipei Arts Festival, Chronicle of Light Year: Taipei-Copenhagen has garnered further international acclaim at festivals in Austria and Denmark. A collaboration between visual poet CHOU Tung-yen and his Very Theatre, and The Culture Yard in Elsinore, Denmark, this piece features hologram technology used in The 4D Box at Elsinore in a fusion of theater, imagery, dance and technology.

It melts the virtual and the real, and constructs another reality.Ruth Schnell, Media Artist & Head of Digital Arts Department, University of Applied Arts Vienna
