Water Stains on the Wall
Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, Choreography: LIN Hwai-min, Music: Toshio HOSOKAWA
Inspired by the highest state in the aesthetics of Chinese calligraphy Lin Hwai-min created a work of beauty and magic that stands sublimely on its own. "My music is calligraphy, drawn on the open border between time and space. Each individual sound is shaped like a line or point, drawn by a brush", Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa says, revealing his aesthetic kinship with Lin Hwai-min's choreography. www.cloudgate.org.tw

Music: excerpts from J.S. Bach, Suites for Cello solo, recorded by Mischa Maisky
To the Chinese, Moon Water is a metaphor of two things. One is a Buddhist proverb: “Flowers in a mirror and moon on the water are both illusory.” The other describes the ideal state of Tai Chi practitioners: “Energy flows as water, while the spirit shines as the moon.” LIN Hwai-min takes these famous quotes as a springboard to create a poetic rendering of the Taoist philosophy. It is a study of the real vs. the unreal, effort vs. effortlessness, Yin and Yang, and in the end, a study of time. www.cloudgate.org.tw

Sacre- interactive 3D production
The staging of Klaus Obermaier's Le sacre du printemps was premiered in 2006, years before the hype about stereoscopic movies started with "Avatar". What still makes this project so different is the fact, that all the virtual objects and environments that you see are created live by the dancer Julia Mach and are generated in real-time. These interactive processes combined with stereoscopic 3D projections result in an outstanding unique experience. more...
