In 2014, due to some obstacles, we had no choice but to give up the renewal plan of the Mountain Theatre at Laochuan Mountain.
However, creating a space for co-existence with life, art and environment was always an eager for Ms. Liu.By chance and serendipity, Ms. Liu came to Jinguashi – a village which was situated between the mountains and the coastline of Northeast Taiwan, and was known for the magnificent landscape and rich culture heritage.
At first glance, Ms. Liu already determined to have U-Theatre’s ecological base to be rooted in here. However, it was not easy to start with. In several times of seeking for government and villager’s understanding and acceptance, finally “U-Ecological Base”was confirmed to root in Jiguashi. It extended from the Jinguashi Geographic Park to Shiunandong.
In the U-Ecological Base, U-Theatre kept on practicing the philosophy of “Tao and Art as One” and the U-Training, and co-exist with nature harmoniously.
On Oct 2016, U-Theatre held a ceremony, which was aimed to give a new name of the Jinguashi Geographic Park – “Outdoor Goldmine Theatre”. Ms. Liu said, “The Outdoor Goldmine Theatre awakens my reminiscence of Carrière de Boulbon of the Festival d’Avignon in 1998, which is the first time U-Theatre stood on international stage.”
