Voices in the Clouds is an intimate look at one man’s search for the spirit of his late mother through the discovery and exploration of his Indigenous roots. Through his journey the audience will become well-acquainted with and emotionally connected to the Indigenous people and cultures of Taiwan. ‘Voices’ celebrates the importance of family, and illustrates the personal richness and fulfillment that is born from being intimately connected to one’s ethnic heritage and culture.
