Acclaimed for its unique fusions of ancient and modern traditions, and its exquisite choreography inspired by the wealth of spiritual practices found throughout Asia, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan returns to London.

 "When you're talking about Cloud Gate, magic is not too strong a word"
TIME OUT

A visually stunning tribute to pilgrimage, Songs of the Wanderers creates a world of intense reverence, distinctly Asian in its imagery yet with powerful relevance far beyond any geographic boundary. Evocative movements set to a soundtrack of soulful Georgian folksongs sung by the Rustavi Choir find life on a simple but striking set, including three tons of shimmering golden grains of rice falling to the floor.
