RICE is a devotion in dance, a choreographic odyssey of the grain that has become a symbol of Asia, an astounding and elemental depiction through dance of the life cycle of rice and humankind.

Hakka folk songs and operatic arias float within an expansive panorama of Taiwan’s living, breathing rice paddies. A video backdrop engulfs the stage, while 24 extraordinary dancers become a “moving synthesis of man and nature, east and west, death and rebirth” (The Guardian).

Immersed in everything from meditation to martial arts, Qi Gong to modern dance, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, Asia’s finest contemporary dance company is led by the inventive, pioneering, master choreographer Lin Hwai-min.

Come witness the might, grace and magic of this remarkable dance company in an unforgettable performance.

A sharply moving synthesis of man and nature, east and west, death and rebirth... Lin Hwai-Min’s own song of the earth.
