Legend has it that “Cloud Gate” is the name of the oldest known dance in China, a ritualistic dance which was supposed to have been performed more than 5,000 years ago. In 1973 the choreographer Lin Hwai-min used this classical name for the company he founded, the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, which was the fi rst company in the Chinese speaking part of the world to dedicate itself to the modern dance theatre. A visually stunning paean to spiritual pilgrimage, “Song of the Wanderers” creates a world intense of reverences, distinctly Asian in its imagery yet with powerful relevance far beyond Asia. Spiritually evocative movement set to soulful Georgian folk songs, brought to life on a truly astonishing set of 3,5 tons of shimmering golden grains of rice. “Aisa’s leading contemporary dance theatre.” The Times “One of the finest dance companies in the world.” The Globe and Mail BONUS: Documentary about the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan including interviews with the director and artists Sound Format: PCM Stereo Picture Format: 16:9 DVD Format: DVD 5 / NTSC Languages (Bonus): GB (Original Language), DE, FR (Subtitles) Running Time: 58 mins (ballet) & 22 mins (documentary) FSK: 0
