Turned to dust
The Cloud Gate Theater of Taiwan returns for a European tour from 29 April with a double-bill conceived and choreographed by the group’s founder Lin Hwai-min. Whilst White Water is a surreal meditation on the three levels of human consciousness, Dust expresses the choreographer’s frustration with political suppression and mass violence in the 21st century.
White Water is set to piano music by French composers such as Erik Satie, and the political message of Dust is reinforced by Dmitri Shostakovich’s 8th String Quartet, dedicated to the victims of fascism and war. The double-bill will first be performed at Baden-Baden before moving to Ludwigshafen and Dresden.
