Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan is renowned for transforming ancient aesthetic traditions into stunning modern celebrations of movement. Founder Lin Hwai Min, widely considered the most important choreographer in Asia, returns to Seattle with his company to perform his newest work, Formosa (“beautiful island”). Using gesture, script, song and other elements from the landscape and history of his native Taiwan, Lin and his dancers create a lustrous, transfigured realm of abstract beauty born of land and lore.

Formosa concept/choreography by Lin Hwai-min.

Formosa is a co-production with National Performing Arts Center - National Theater & Concert Hall, Taiwan, R.O.C.; National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), Taiwan, R.O.C; Sadler's Wells, London, UK; Theatre de la Ville – Paris, France; and Carolina Performing Arts, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.

This tour is made possible by the grants from the Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan).
