**This workshop is already concluded.
Joo chooses specific sites including busy famous tourism or historical spots, such as Qixingtan Beach, National Revolutionary Martyrs' Shrine, Villa 18, and so on to create highly contradictory hierarchy and contrast between tourists, community people, and outsiders. There is an absurd quality of it between people and land during the performance. It stirs up lots of attention and questions in terms of tourism development in Hualien particularly. She also did some research about indigenous people’s music and how indigenous people being seen and valued in society generally to inspire her to create serious works for performance and exhibition.

Across the desolate swamps of these wastelands; today, you people are no longer maggots. You will emerge from your chrysalis, a new tautness of mind, from the deadly emanations of this performance. Your perforated sonar will scavenge on the acrid remains of swampland flesh and soul in concerto unison – accelerando! fortissimo! presto!... Behold, The Abdominal Bass Cavern of a Stricken Heart! Listen well, feast and fester, or turn on your heels and go back like a raven reincarnated in regret.
