As the COVID pandemic is receding after two years, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan will resume its first overseas tour in the US in October, with its current Artistic Director CHENG Tsung-lung’s 13 Tongues. Inspired by CHENG’s childhood memories of Taipei’s oldest district, Bangka, 13 Tongues is full of the vivacity of street life and the imagination of people living there.
The tour is scheduled to kick off Oct. 1 in Houston, Texas, followed by performances on Oct. 6 in Palo Alto, California; Oct. 14-15 in Chicago, Illinois; Oct. 20-22 in Washington, D.C.; Oct. 26 in Costa Mesa, California; and Oct. 29-30 in Berkeley, California.
Founded in 1973 by internationally renowned choreographer Lin Hwai-min, Cloud Gate is acclaimed as “Asia’s leading contemporary dance theater” (The Times) and “One of the best dance companies in the world” (FAZ).
