ABOUT

The Flying Group Theatre was established in 2004 by SHIH Pei-Yu. In Chinese, its name Fei-Ren (flying man) is a phonetic wordplay on ‘non-human,’ referring to the puppet side of the theatre, while at the same time suggesting this is a place where artists and creative talents gather to fly around freely. In the early years following the group’s inception, puppetry was the main focus of creative expression. The group’s work was invited to take part in several art festivals in Taiwan, Beijing, the Netherlands, France and Singapore.
 
In 2010, the Flying Group Theatre transitioned into their second phase, striving to produce performance pieces that follow the spirit of multimedia integration, are intimate in scale, and challenge the traditionally accepted distance between performer and spectator. The troupe hosted the first CLOSE TO YOU International Puppet Festival. As the curator and organizer of the festival, the Flying Group promoted small scale puppet theatre using objects as the primary media in theatre pieces and performed in non-conventional venues and intimate spaces. The festival will be held for the fifth time in 2014.
 
In 2011, the Flying Group collaborated with L'est et l'Ouest to debut the trilogy, A Sleep and a Forgetting, which is follow up of the For You, My Children series. The trilogy first born in 2011 was completed in 2013.
