Songs of the Wanderers

November 24, 2016 - November 27, 2016

Lin Hwai-Min, director of Cloud Gate, created Songs of Wanderers back in 1994, basing it on ideas of religious practices across Asia, particularly the idea of pilgrimage in search of enlightenment.  It is regarded as a signature work for the company which encapsulates many of their particular skills and qualities – the dancers train in meditation and martial arts as well as dance. The work uses a cast of over twenty though Lin Hwai-Min seldom deploys all his forces at once, preferring a more concentrated effect. It’s an ensemble piece with few solos and all the cast have great focus and control. The women look particularly powerful and strong, never passive.
