Movement Mondays: Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan

Visually stunning.  I love the use of the 4 elements that Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan use to create their pieces.  In this case, the sand and fire are quite complex. It reminds me of a Pina Bausch dance piece.  Either way-I really wish that I could have seen this company when they came to Chicago about a year back.

 

Check out this other one called Bamboo Dreams.  I just love the use of color and the bamboo that adds such texture to the set.  It almost feels like mirrors reflecting the dancers.  They are so in sync!
