“The stage is a concrete physical place which asks to be filled, and to be given its own concrete language to speak.” – Antonin Artaud, The Theater And Its Double

Taiwanese photographer Shen Chao-Liang documented elaborate stages often found in his native country. These stages are bewildering and startling to behold, perhaps more bewildering than the entertainment acts played out on them.

Other works can be found on his portfolio. For more images for the series above, visit Aki Gallery.
