Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan: Formosa

March 22–24, 2018
Meany Hall

TSAI Ming-yuan LIU Chen-hsiang

In this full-length work choreographer Lin Hwai-min uses Formosa, a beautiful island beset by earthquakes, typhoons and societal rifts, as a metaphor of the world we live in and to contemplate an epigram from the Buddhist Diamond Sutra:

All things contrived are like dream, illusion, bubble, shadow, and as dewdrop or lightning. They should be regarded as such.
