|In the hilarious atmosphere, Taiwan Opera: The Female
Robin Hood-Pai Hsiao Lan contours a picture of people's theatre and
also a discernable coming of another theatre movement. The content
and the intent of this work prove Golden Bough unrivaled in comparison
with many of its contemporary.

|To attract audience, Golden Bough Theatre expresses
Taiwanese popular culture with flashy and out-coming emotion that
makes art a part of life. ---- New Taiwan Weekly
Butterflies is the most powerful, gorgeous
and unusual tragedy in recent years.
--- Ming Pao Weekly, HongKong
|Performers are energetic and sensible. Performance is
exaggerative, eccentric and finally farcically pleasant. Such exaggerative
theatricality paves the way for the pursuit of another perceivable
level of reality. The kitsch-like style appropriated from the popular
culture is merely a subterfuge and finally reveals its designed novelty.
---- Lin Ke-huan, the former Dean of China
Youth Arts College, theatre critic
|Golden Bough Theatre gives people an impression like
an approachable yet formidable chevalier as if the rebirth of legendary
Shui-hu heros in modern time Taiwan. ---Performing
|Golden Bough Theatre always amazes. ----

|“In Remembrance of Troy” performed on Gihou ancient cannon platform attracted people to step onto the wriggled trail leading to the historical site by the ocean. With the lighthouse beam traveling through gently and the full moon rising to the eastern sky, the moment has come to show the splendid Warfield space at the height of death, faintly indicating the dying-for-art sorrow, indulgence, along with the secretive pleasant sensation.
