Taiwan-based Against Again Troupe create theatre themed around sexuality and identity. Here they focus on those born after the 1980 in Taiwan, through 12 stories revealing a generation both liberated in their lifestyles and weak in the face of social pressure. How will their youth and their dreams be swallowed by capitalism? From such diverse questions, we glean the existential values of the young.
