My Sunshine Book is our book. It flows with common humanity, plural lives female and male that intersect and hope for change. The new writing deals with a boy who is a refugee, running, a theme especially meaningful in places where the sense of the future is one of uncertainty, as among the aborigines of Taiwan. Written as an open source invitation for collaboration for Taiwanese and US artists; The Sunshine Book is a song cycle of images, tableau, outburst and speechless dances, instrumental music, cinema and the power of the human voice…

Performances feature members of Aboriginal tribes in Taiwan, as well as artists and performers from the United States and Taiwan. The expanded text by Mabou Mines writer director Terry O’Reilly is intended for the particular interests of the Taiwanese people.
