“Visually stunning and exquisitely performed in deliberate slow motion; the audience jumped up to offer a cheering ovation.” Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times
A masterpiece of imagination and timeless inner tranquility, this visually stunning paean to spiritual pilgrimage is a signature work of Taiwan’s leading contemporary dance company. Inspired by Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha, asceticism and the quest for quietude, Lin Hwai-min transforms ancient rites into mesmerizing dance theatre. Set to soulful Georgian folk songs, startlingly beautiful images are created through a blend of Eastern and Western dance styles, the absolute focus and control of the performers – and massive shimmering curtains of saffron rice.
