Simply put, taboos are people, things or things that ordinary people must avoid. In the case of international integration, there are more and more foreign-funded enterprises in China. When you hold annual meetings or events for such enterprises, you must pay attention to the taboos brought about by the cultural differences of various countries. Different countries and regions have different cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs, customs, moral concepts, and lifestyles, so they also have their own favorite or taboo patterns and corresponding regulations. Only when the design of dance beauty adapts to these can it be possible to win local people's approval.
Taboos also have the following characteristics: Taboos are political: when cooperating with foreign-funded enterprises, the design of stage art should also pay attention to politics. Many taboos are produced due to different political purposes and political positions; taboos are national: When designing, we should consider the nationality of the other party? What are the taboos of this nation? Taboos are religious: many taboos are due to religious reasons. Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam each have their own taboos; taboos are regional: the same country does not necessarily have the same taboos, and different regions have different taboos; taboos are traditional: different ethnic groups have different taboos. During cultural exchanges, one should pay attention to the taboos of the other party; taboos are contractual: as far as stage designers are concerned, they should always pay attention to the changes of taboos. 1 Number taboo. For example, the numbers "4" and "9" are taboo in Japan. Therefore, the annual meeting of Japanese companies cannot use "4" as the unit, like 4 light boxes and 4 scenery films. Customers will be unwelcome (insert, I personally will not hold annual meetings of Japanese companies); Europeans and Americans taboo "13", this recognition is relatively common.
2 Taboos of signs and patterns Taboos of signs and patterns are usually divided into taboos of characters, animals, plants and geometric figures: Arab countries prohibit the use of hexagonal star patterns. Because the six-pointed star is similar to the pattern on the Israeli flag, Arab countries are very disgusted and taboo about things with the six-pointed star pattern. In countries that believe in Islam, pigs or pig-like patterns, such as bears and pandas, are prohibited on the temple.
Britain doesn't like the appearance of big portraits. Also avoid using elephants and goats, but like white cats; like the French, Britain also regards peacocks as evil birds, and horses as a symbol of bravery. Purple patterns are banned in Brazil because purple is used for funerals.
Saudi Arabia has an aversion to things with pictures of wine bottles, churches, and crosses. For Germany, symbols resembling swastikas and swastikas are banned from marking. Businesses in Libya are prohibited from using patterns of pigs, as are female body patterns.
The French regard horses as a symbol of bravery; the French avoid walnuts, spades and chrysanthemums. Peacocks are regarded as evil birds, and cranes and tortoises are taboo. The Swiss have a taboo against owls.
In addition, except for the Belgians who regard cats as ominous, most Europeans like black cats. In addition, the triangle is regarded as a warning sign internationally, so the regular triangle pattern generally does not appear. For example, the peacock, the real phoenix worshiped by Chinese folks, is considered a symbol of "sensuality" in India.
3 Taboos of colors Different nationalities have different taboos on colors due to their different customs and religious beliefs. "Do as the Romans do" and "Change as the Romans do", the stage design must also consider the likes and dislikes of colors in different countries or ethnic groups, so as to avoid unnecessary loopholes. When designing the activities of such foreign-funded enterprises, appropriate colors should be selected according to the living customs of all countries in the world.

Japan avoids green and likes red, Americans like bright colors and avoid using purple; Muslims especially hate yellow, because it symbolizes death, like green, and think it can drive away diseases; Brazilians think purple is sad, and dark brown is It is an ominous omen, and it is extremely disgusting: the French regard bright colors as noble and popular; the Swiss regard black as the mourning color, but like red, gray, blue and green; the Dutch regard orange as a lively color, orange and blue The colors represent the colors of the country.
