UK PREMIERE 

The sister company of Taiwan's internationally celebrated Cloud Gate Dance Theatre, Cloud Gate 2 presents the country's most talented young dancers and choreographers. This hotly anticipated triple bill is the first time Cloud Gate 2 has performed in the UK.

"Fast-paced, exciting and fluid"
DANCE EUROPE (on Wicked Fish)

Wicked Fish sees the dancers mimic a shoal of fish, as puzzle-like choreography competes with its complex score, while The Wall examines ideas of protection and segregation, highlighting the physical and mental barriers built around us. Cheng Tsung-lung's Beckoning focuses on how people can shift identities almost instantaneously, and creates a mysterious zigzag of body language with movements distilled subtly from Taiwanese street-dancing rituals that gives this abstract work a playful and poetic quality.
