The 2018 Kuandu Arts Festival (KDAF) will feature 21 art groups from Europe, Asia, as well as Taiwan in a month-long event with 45 activities beginning September 28.
 
TNUA President Prof. Chen Kai-Huang noted at the press conference announcing the event that it is the 26th year since the first edition of KDAF. This year also sees collaboration with the Taipei Arts Festival, as well as Goethe Institut Taipei, which recommended and invited artists to the TNUA event.   
 
At the same time, TNUA will also hold the Kuandu Biennale at the Kuadu Museum of Fine Arts (KdMoFA), the Kuan-Du Film Festival, the KuanDu International Animation Festival, and the KuanDu Light Art Ffestival.
 
Prof. Chien Lee-Zen, dean of the School of Theatre Arts who is artistic director of the 2018 KDAF, said this year’s event explores the integration of the traditional and the modern, as well as the relationships between the body and mind, in a multiplicity of artistic expressions. 
 
The 2018 KDAF focuses on cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaboration, such as the B.Dance troupe “Blah Blah Blah,” and “Soldier’s Masss. Rise” jointly staged by Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and TNUA’s Department of Dance. 
 
In theatre, “Level with Me” is a work co-presented by TNUA and Chulalongkorn University’s Academic Services Center of Arts.
 
In music, renowned conductor Gilbert Varga will conduct the TNUA Orchestra in a concert. The School of Music will also stage an opera, “La Sonnambula.”For more information, please visit: kdaf.tnua.edu.tw/2018; or KDAF’s Facebook page.
