When it comes to love, do you want something that feels
different every other day, or would you rather have true
love that stays the same for the rest of your life? "Love
has no rhythm or reason" is a mega production by renowned
musician Li Zong Sheng. It is based on a moving love story
taking place between Taipei and Shanghai. The musical has
a refreshingly new style. Spring Theater was established
in March 1999 by Ms. Lang Zu Yun.

vibrancy and progress, yet behind it all is the harsh reality
of lives under strain.

event. The museum's dialogue with local Aboriginal artists,
and their recognition of this unique art form, has helped
realize the staging of this exhibition. The 200-plus works
were inspired by the natural environment of Australia; the

life and its people's intimate and inseparable bond with
