Where to go, what to do on October 18 in Shanghai.
Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan: RICE @ Shanghai Oriental Art Center
Choreographer Lin Hwai-min’s company transforms traditional Taiwanese dance vocabulary into modern celebrations of motion in this performance. Inspired by the energy and resplendence of Chihshang in the East Rift Valley of Taiwan, home of the “Emperor’s Rice,” it’s set to the music of Hakka folk songs, the oldest among the existing Chinese dialect, and operatic arias and sounds from the fields, against a video backdrop that depicts the life cycle of a rice paddy.
