Founded in 1973 by Lin Hwai-min and celebrated by Time magazine as “the leading contemporary dance company in Asia”, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan is coming to Chaillot with 13 Tongues, the creation of its new artistic director Cheng Tsung-lung.

The choreographer Cheng Tsung-lung is the current artistic director of the Taiwanese company Cloud Gate 2 and he will take over the direction of the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre at the end of 2019. He has always been fascinated by his mother’s stories. One of them talks about the storyteller Thirteen Tongues, an artist capable of imitating all of the colourful characters of Bangka, the oldest district in Taipei. In this piece, Cheng Tsung-lung recalls childhood memories, Taoist rituals and Bangka’s very animated streets, to combine them in a sort of fantastic and quite idealistic way. Filled with sacred mystery and fantasy, the choreographer makes twirling ghosts appear, a thousand colours take shape, goddesses float and fish fly that then disappear out of nowhere. The dancers sing Taoist mantras, shaking and trembling like enchanted Shamans, as if thousands of wandering spirits of ancient Bangka had come to visit us.Agnès Izrine
