Bamboo Dream’ comes to the Tower

By Cressa Perloff

Dance Theatre Coalition will be presenting “Bamboo Dream,” a dance film by the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, Wednesday at the Tower Theatre. With traditional Chinese flute melodies and music by Arvo Prt, the film features 20 barefoot dancers and explores ancient Chinese myths involving bamboo.

In “Bamboo Dream,” choreographer Lin Hwai-Min melds Eastern and Western styles of dance, drawing inspiration from tai chi, meditation, American modern dance, classical ballet and martial arts. The choreography “presents a distinct and mature Chinese choreographic language,” Dance Europe said.

Dance Theatre Coalition, a local nonprofit that aims to support emerging artists and broaden the horizons of Salt Lake City’s art scene, is presenting the film to the public as a fund-raiser. “For the general public, going to see a? film of dance is a great introduction to dance,” said Amy Caron, director of DTC. She said it makes dance more accessible because people see movies all the time and are more comfortable with the experience than going to a theater.

Caron said she chose “Bamboo Dream” for DTC to present because of “its technical quality (in dance ?performance and film production), universal appeal, pure beauty and ?cultural flavor.”

“Bamboo Dream” will be presented one night only on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at dancetheatrecoalition.org/Bamboo_Dream.html or through the Tower or Broadway theaters.
