Mumble Jumble

Cacophony of the Era, Singing While Laughing



Mumble Jumble is a comedy representative of Taiwan's society in response to the elections. The play is  a parody of not only Taiwan politics but democracy in general.  Created through improvisation, Mumble Jumble leads the audience through the seemingly mad emotional landscape of pre-election politics on Taiwan. The performance romps through hilarious farce and sober contemplation. The play serves as an observation of society.
