TAO Dance Theatre
TAO Dance Theatre has taken the dance world by storm. Choreographer and founder Tao Ye’s ritualistic aesthetic combines with the rigor and exploration of contemporary expression to create hypnotic and mesmerising works that represent the cutting edge of creativity.
Weight x 3 is a triptych set to the unmistakable pulsating rhythms of minimalist composer Steve Reich, in which both the music and the dancers seem caught in never-evening loops and repetitions. It features two duets – the dancers moving in near perfect unison, reflecting the music’s shifting patterns – and a skilful solo in which a female dancer twirls and manipulates a long staff with amazing speed and dexterity.
5 is part of Tao Ye’s numbered series of minimalist experiments that explore the potential of the human body as a purely visual form, freed from the constraints of representation or narrative. Accompanied by the music of Chinese Indie-folk-rock composer Xiao He, five dancers touch each other; never separating, moving in an indistinguishable mass.
- Running time:1 hour and 30 minutes approximately
