Cloud Gate Dance Theatre: Moon Water

Date: 13 May 2020

Cloud Gate Dance Theatre was Taiwan’s first contemporary dance company and it continues to stun audiences with its unique choreography, transforming ancient aesthetics into a modern celebration of motion.

Set to Bach’s Suites for Solo Cello, founding director Lin Hwai-min’s Moon Water is inspired by the Buddhist proverb ‘Flowers in a mirror and moon on the water are both illusive’.

Multiple mirrors and gently moving water gradually fill the stage and reflect the dancers’ movements in a beautifully meditative performance.

This performance, captured at Sadler’s Wells, London, in 2002 is available to view here, for one week, from May 16.
