Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan
Songs of the Wanderers

This 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 dance theatre. Set to Georgian folk songs, beautiful images are created through a blend of Eastern and Western dance styles, the absolute focus and control of the performers – and massive shimmering curtains of saffron rice.
