HUI has emerged from an exciting international collaboration between Taiwan, Great-Britain and the Netherlands, and puts the piano music of Tan Dun in the spotlight.
This contemporary dance- theatre performance exposes spores. Remnants that remain and traces we create for the future. It is a wonderful journey through the seasons of life and in which the ever-changing beauty of nature is expressed. On Tan Dun's piano music, inspired by the line "In the time of snow, moon and flowers, I think of you" of Tang Dynasty poet BAI Juyi.
