    That's okay. Probably effeminate looking when some dancers take just five weeks absorbing it. Now if it was martial artists taking 5 weeks to mashup some dance, then I'd really want to see it...

    Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan 13 Tongues


    Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan
    13 Tongues

    One of Asia’s foremost contemporary dance companies, Cloud Gate was founded in 1973 by choreographer Lin Hwai-min. The company, named after the oldest known dance in China, combines martial arts, Qi Gong, modern dance, and classical ballet. Lin Hwai-min retired in 2019, handing the reins to choreographer Cheng Tsung-lung for his inaugural season as artistic director in 2020.

    In 13 Tongues, Cheng Tsung-lung transforms his childhood memories of the streets of Bangka into a fantastical, dreamlike world, fusing ancient superstitions, religious rites, and modern Taipei culture. Beginning and ending with the sound of a single handbell, the music accompanying 13 Tongues ranges from Taiwanese folk songs to Taoist chants to electronica. On a stage awash with projections of colors, shapes, and images, dancers gather, interact, separate, and then come together again in a vibrant representation of the clamor of street life.
