The Dublin Dance Festival (DDF) performs May 13 - 28, 2011 at DanceHouse, Project Arts Centre, and several other venues around the city of Dublin, Ireland.
A major focus in DDF 2011 is the work of Asian choreographers -- fitting enough to us here in the US, where May 2011 is Asian American Heritage Month.
The Centerpiece Performance is Songs of the Wanderers by Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan. "A stream of rice drizzles onto the head of an Asian monk. Tonnes of golden grains ricochet and rain down to form an ever changing landscape through which some 20 extraordinary Cloud Gate dancers move." Based on Hermann Hesse’s novel Siddhartha, Lin Hwai-min’s signature work evokes a spiritual journey and a grand purification ritual.
Training in qi gong, meditation, internal martial arts, modern dance, ballet and calligraphy all feed into producing the awesome movements of the Cloud Gate dancers, who have been captivating audiences worldwide for over 20 years.
