PREVIEW: Cloud Gate Dance Theatre

The Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan will be performing at the Power Center on Friday October 21st and Saturday October 22nd at 8 p.m. The company will perform Water Stains on the Wall, artistic director Lin Hwai-min’s newest piece. The work is a metaphor for the exquisite beauty of Chinese calligraphy, the dancers’ movement like flowing ink on pure rice paper. With dancers trained not only in ballet and modern dance, but also tai chi, meditation, and Chinese opera movement, the unique quality and control of the movement is sure to be breathtakingly ethereal.
