Cheng Tsung-lung, Artistic Director

13 Tongues is a sensationally big, indulgent, and visually arresting expression of cultural memory.” The Times (U.K.)

“When you’re talking about Cloud Gate, magic is not too strong a word.” Time Out

In 13 Tongues, Cloud Gate Dance Theatre brings the sights and sounds of Taiwan’s legendary night markets to life in all their human and spiritual dimensions. Mixing traditional storytelling with futuristic imagery and shifting between folk, classical and electronic music sources, 13 Tongues delivers an unforgettable experience of contemporary dance at its most innovative and spectacular. Drawing on childhood memories of a famous street performer from 1980s Taipei, Artistic Director Cheng Tsung-lung and the Cloud Gate dancers weave a brilliant tapestry of ancient and modern images set to a dazzling range of musical idioms.
