On the occasion of Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan’s 40th anniversary, internationally renowned choreographer Lin Hwai-min created RICE, inspired by the energy and resplendence of Chihshang in the East Rift Valley of Taiwan, home of “Emperor’s Rice.” Accompanied by Hakka folk songs and operatic arias, against a video backdrop spanning the life cycle of a rice paddy, the formidable Cloud Gate dancers celebrate the earth that has nurtured “Asia’s leading contemporary dance theatre.”
