Cloud Gate is the name of the oldest known dance in China, and in 1973 choreographer Lin Hwai-min adopted this name for the first contemporary dance company in any Chinese- speaking community. The most acclaimed Asian contemporary dance company, Cloud Gate makes its Portland debut with Lin Hwai-min’s masterpiece, Songs of the Wanderers, a visually stunning evocation of spiritual pilgrimage, brought to life with a set featuring 3 ½ tons of shimmering, golden grains of rice.
