Description: "Talent and skill require little translation--Cloud Gate 2 has those virtues, and--they should be shared with the rest of the world," declares The New York Times about this fascinating company, who performs Associate Artistic Director Cheng Tsun-lung's On The Road, in which light and shadow merge with a rich and inventive movement vocabulary distilled from various forms of Asian body language. Set to scores ranging from Taiwanese folk songs to traditional Naxi, to Islamic music, and finally to Tom Waits' smoky voice, the evening-length piece unites Eastern and Western tradition to convey a powerful artistic message.
Venue Description: An inexpensive dance theater located in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, inside the former Elgin 1940's movie house. Renowned companies such as Complexions, FOCUS DANCE, MOMIX, Parson, and many others make this their NYC stop.
