‘Moon Water’ (Suei Yuei) can refer to two things: a Buddhist proverb, lliterally ‘Mirror Flower Water Moon’ and the ideal state of the T’ai Chi practitioner: ‘Energy flows like water, and the mind shines like the moon’.
Lin Hwai-Min drew on these two sources of inspiration to devise a piece where the real and unreal coexist, where the intimate connection between Yin and Yang is revealed.
The Cloud Gate Dance Theatre, founded by Lin Hwai-Min in 1973, uses a body language that is a sophisticated mix of T’ai Chi, meditation, gestures borrowed from Chinese opera and Western contemporary dance. A particularly poetic synthesis.
