Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan´s seductive and commanding Cursive II is the result of a long journey into the ancient practice of movement and spirituality. By blending even more tai chi into his familiar modern dance idiom, Lin Hwai-min, choreographer of the highly acclaimed Moon Water and Bamboo Dream, has created an achingly beautiful work in monochrome tones. Danced against a restrained background featuring blown-up images of precious Sung porcelain framed by black rice paper, Cursive II is punctuated by variations in energy and complexity, driven by Lin´s deeply poignant collage of music by another Buddhist, John Cage. Cursive II is an exquisite meditation on the balancing of opposites, presented in an aura of mesmerising minimalism, allowing no distraction from thecarefully filmed details of the dance.
