TAO Dance Theater cultivates a paradoxical injustice for the exclusive benefit of the audience. Because, even if dancers stick to repetitive and minimalist structures, through an astounding body flexibility, they open wide the audience’s imagination!
Tao-Ye, founder and director of the TAO Dance Theater, developed a “circular movement system” that is the basis for a vigorous training. His philosophical unisons move towards common breathing, pureness and eternity, in harmony with the universe. Thus, Tao-Ye is the Philip Glass of Asiatic dance, reaching complexity through repetition. That is still the case in “8”. Then, suddenly everything changes. “9” touches on an underlying chaos undermining the bottom where the surface comes to light. Enough to make yin dance with yang, even with odd, heaven with void.
