“[Cloud Gate] is not only on a par with the best modern dance companies of the Old World and the New, but perhaps even beyond.” —Ballet International
On its last U.S. tour, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre stunned local audiences with the beautiful and meditative Cursive, the second part of their remarkable trilogy. The company returns with Wild Cursive, featuring a singular mix of Asian and Western dance styles and movement inspired by the ancient art of calligraphy, choreographed by Lin Hwai-min (named “Choreographer of the 20th Century” by Dance Europe). Streams of black ink flow across massive scrolls of rice paper onstage as the astounding dancers of Cloud Gate move with incantatory power. Copresented with Northrop Dance Season.
