22° lunar halo // world premiere in taiwan from 13 to 28 april, 2019
this new dance piece by taiwanese choreographer and artistic director cheng tsung-lung from the cloud gate 2 – music by sigur rós and kjartan holm
in ancient folklore, a lunar halo is a sign foreboding changes, while scientifically it appears when the moonlight is refracted by 22 degrees through millions of ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere. accompanied by the oneiric music in collaboration with sigur rós and kjartan holm, this new dance piece by taiwanese choreographer and artistic director cheng tsung-lung from the cloud gate 2 excavates our deepest fear toward ourselves as human beings through bodies of dancers morphing into concrete symbols of anxieties, struggles, desires and loneliness in the lunatic, ever-changing world of high-end technology, and eventually leads us to a slim hope of love and inner serenity.
