Moon Water

Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan is renowned for delivering spellbinding, spiritual performances. Here the company perform the breathtakingly beautiful Moon Water (a hit at Sadler’s Wells in 2002), in which the whole stage is flooded with water and reflections, creating a stunning on-stage work of art. Choreographer LIN Hwai-min has integrated meditation, tai-chi, martial arts and Chinese opera movement with modern dance and ballet, to develop a truly unique dance style - varying from the weighty stillness of a stone sculpture, to floating lyricism, to fierce martial-art like attack. Moon Water is set to movements from Bach’s Suites for Solo Cello. Mirrors appear on stage, reflecting the image of the moving dancers and the patterns of the white brush strokes of the set. Water then flows onto the stage, until the floor itself becomes a huge mirror reflecting dancing bodies.
