Cloud Gate Dance Theatre RICE


Catch the 1st of 3 performances of Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan in our Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.  Known as Taiwan’s premiere contemporary dance company, Cloud Gate blends a unique and mesmerizing style influenced by Tai-Chi, martial arts and modern dance.  Their production, Rice, tells the cyclical story of the staple crop, set against a backdrop of stunning photography from the region.

Meanwhile in Walt Disney Concert Hall, Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the LA Phil in a program of Beethoven and Mahler.  And in the CalArts REDCAT theatre, check out Meg Wolfe’s new lushly physical movement workNew Faithful Disco , for a very different kind of dance show!
