Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan

13 Tongues by Cheng Tsung-lung

Jackson Hall

A group of dancers, dressed in black, standing together in front of a projection of a fish.

“When you’re talking about Cloud Gate, ‘magic’ is not too strong a word.” Effusive praise from no less a source than Time Out magazine.

Formed in Taiwan in 1973, Cloud Gate is known for transforming ancient aesthetics into a thrilling and modern celebration of motion. Indeed, Cloud Gate could very well be compared to the story-ballet spectacle stylings of Mondavi Center favorites Ballet Preljocaj or Akram Khan.  13 Tongues is inspired by the childhood of current artistic director Cheng Tsung-lung and has been praised as “a sensationally big, indulgent, and visually arresting expression of cultural memory” (The Times).
