From March 14, 2014 – March 16, 2014
Cloud Gate will perform Founder/Artistic Director Lin Hwai-min’s Songs of the Wanderers, inspired by the wealth of religious practices throughout Asia and Herman Hesse’s account of Siddhartha’s quest for enlightenment. A visually stunning paean to spiritual pilgrimage, the work creates a world of intense reverence that is distinctly Asian in its imagery, yet with powerful relevance far beyond. The scenic design includes an astonishing three and a half tons of shimmering golden grains of rice that shower down on the stage throughout the piece. The music is a series of Georgian folk songs.
