The East and the West meet with a rare fluidity in Lin Hwai-Min’s home, fed by martial arts and both classic and modern dance. In this new work Formosa, the choreographer along with the Cloud Gate Dance Theater of Taiwan takes inspiration in the landscape and history of Taiwan while also reflecting on universal human experiences. → in partnership with Théâtre de la Ville

THE SHOW

In the 16th century, gazing out from the decks of ships off the coast of China, Portuguese sailors saw it: a great green mass, thick with mountains and trees, rising from the sea. “Formosa!” they exclaimed—“beautiful!”— designating the verdant place that would later be known as Taiwan.

Using gestures, scripts, songs and other elements from the island as raw materials, Lin Hwai-Min and dancers create a lustrous, transfigured sphere in which only the universal remains—a playground of love and life, mediated by tragedy, hope, and rebirth. Recorded music by award-winning indigenous singer Sangpuy serves as the soundtrack as the dancers stomp, sway, dash, and dart. With unparalleled grace, they mingle in intimations of community, making tribal ritual and urban bustle seem as one.
