Unique U-Theatre wows audience in Saudi Arabia

TAIPEI -- The renowned Taiwanese arts group U-Theatre wowed the audience with the first of five performances at a summer festival in Saudi Arabia.

It was the first performance by a professional Taiwanese arts group to take place in the Middle Eastern country, U-Theatre said.

U Theatre, famed for its unique combination of drumming, Zen meditation and martial arts, performed its well-known production "Sound of the Ocean" to an audience of some 1,000 in the city of Dhahran.

The performances are part of the Saudi Cultural Program and U-Theatre is also the only professional troupe from Asia among the five foreign groups taking part in the festival.

"It was a great show," local audience member Abdulaziz Mozaini said afterward.

"I think probably most people here have never seen anything like this before," Mozaini told CNA.

The "Sound of the Ocean" traces the cyclic journey of water from a drop to a stream and from a river to the ocean. It had its debut in 1998 to wide acclaim and has also been performed in France, the United Kingdom and the United States.
