Taiwan Season: The Back of Beyond

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus
Founded in 1987 by choreographer Hsiu-wei Lin, Tai Gu Tales Dance Theatre leads five extraordinary dancers on an arresting physical and spiritual journey. The company's rich, rigorous aesthetic merges Eastern cultural traditions and contemporary Western practices. The production is shaped by a concern for how human beings co-exist with each other and their environment. Rooted in the elemental forces of light/dark and love/hate, this is dance as a charged theatrical dream-ritual charting the cycle of life from birth to death and rebirth.
