The FASCA Portland Chapter wowed audiences with their debut shadow puppet performance, "Journey to the West: Flaming Mountain" on December 2nd. Just three months under mentors Chen Jizhao, Xing Tairui, and Chen Lanqing, these young puppeteers captivated parents and ignited anticipation for their future cultural contributions.

From crafting puppets to translating scripts, the members fully immersed themselves in shadow puppetry's rich history. Their dedication shone through in the polished performance, earning praise from mentors for their teamwork and passion.

While acknowledging room for refinement, mentors Chen Lanqing and Xing Tairui beamed with pride: "They were simply remarkable!" Already attracting invitations, the troupe promises to mesmerize audiences at Portland's Lan Su Garden and beyond, spreading the magic of Taiwanese culture in the coming year.

FASCA members in Portland diligently rehearse shadow puppetry.
