Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan was the first contemporary dance company in any Chinese speaking community. The company are known for transforming ancient aesthetics into thrillingly original performances that draw on diverse disciplines; from chi kung and meditation to ballet and internal martial arts. Choreographic master Lin Hwai-min has created a contemporary dance work that makes shadows come alive. Joining forces with leading Chinese visual artist Cai Guo-Qiang, Wind Shadow
is a study of motion created through monochromatic palettes and the use of light and shadow. Set to a haunting soundscape, the dancers capture the intangible quality of the wind and the variable structures of shadows. Projections of Cai's gunpowder drawings merge into silhouettes and form a moving art installation within which the dancers engage with their independent shadows. Co-commissioned by Yong Lin Foundation; National Chiang Kai-Shek Cultural Center (Taiwan). 80 min with no interval Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan - Wind Shadow website
