Immigrants from all over the world come to Taiwan where they find work, start families, and contribute to making the island more diverse. In today’s installment of "An Immigrant Story," we meet Ghanniy Oyedele from Nigeria. He’s a teacher and also founder of a bilingual theater. FTV reporter Stephany Yang spoke to Oyedele to find out more about his experiences of founding a theater in Taiwan. Actors take to the stage. This is a performance Theater BLiM, a bilingual theater in Taiwan. BLiM was created by Ghanniy Oyedle in 2020, in hopes of providing a platform for everyone to participate in theater. Ghanniy Oyedele BLiM creative director BLiM are words we put together. The acronym for these words that means the same thing. They all mean cultural oriented. "B" is bohemian. "L" is luxurious. "I" is inclusive or inexpensive. "M" is multifarious. All these words mean ethnic. We pulled these words together because we were talking about theaters. We looked at the reasoning why people don’t get to perform in theater or get a role in theater. One of the excuses that they used to prevent you from acting is maybe you are too ethnic or you don’t have an English accent or you don’t have this accent. You don’t have that. If you come for auditions, we don’t let you go without offering you something. People need opporutnity I got to say. We have cast memmebrs coming from Kaosiung every weekend for rehersal and also from Taichung. That shows that there’s a need for English speaking theater in Taiwan. Oyedele is from Nigeria and lived in the U.K. for a few years before moving to Taiwan 12 years ago. He married a Taiwanese woman and now has two kids. Besides being the creative director and executive producer of BLiM, Oyedele is also an elementary school teacher in Taiwan. His teaching philosophy is that of a facilitator. He says he uses the same teaching philosophy in his theater productions. Ghanniy Oyedele BLiM creative director I have been a teacher for a very long time. I enjoy teaching. I actually said earlier that I see myself as a faciliator of learning to help students to learn. We also call it interpersonal learning. We let students come out and show what they know. We give them the confidence to speak. In my teaching, I try to use theater like readers theater or get kids to get up and talk. My teaching style is more of a communicative style. I love teaching in Taiwan. BLiM ’s newest show will be in December. The show, “Night of the Gods” will showcase four plays that offer a glimpse into African culture with a Taiwanese twist. Ghanniy Oyedele BLiM creative director We are talking about African inclusivity. I wrote stories about Nigeria. I wrote stories about African gods. We are looking for things that we can relate to Taiwan. We have "I am Your Father." It’s about an African father and his Taiwanese child. The relationship and concept of an African father and a Taiwanese child with a Taiwanese culture. It’s about the collision of cultures. The goal of Taiwan for 2030 bilingual generation. That can be achieved by the education department, yes, but it will take a longer time. But if other departments join, for example, the Ministry of Culture invests and supports things like grassroots amateur theater like this, it will help to achieve that goal of a bilingual generation by 2030. Oydele’s mission is to tell the stories of African culture as well as promote bilingual theater in Taiwan.
