Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan

Sunday, March 16 at 3:00pm

Auditorium Theatre 50 East Congress Parkway

A masterpiece of imagination and timeless inner tranquility, Songs of the Wanderers, a visually stunning paean to spiritual pilgrimage, is a signature work of Taiwan’s leading contemporary dance company. Inspired by Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha, asceticism and the quest for quietude, Lin Hwai-min transforms ancient rites into mesmerizing dance theatre. Set to soulful Georgian folk songs, startlingly beautiful images are created through a blend of Eastern and Western dance styles, with absolute focus and control by the performers. The set is created from an astonishing three and a half tons of shimmering golden grains of rice that shower down on the stage throughout the piece.
