雲門舞集40週年紀念舞作「稻禾」,是舞蹈家林懷民以稻米之鄉臺東池上的泥土、日光、風、水和稻米為靈感所創作的明亮舞作,融入西方詠嘆調和美濃客家歌謠,藉由稻米的生命循環,呈現台灣人與土地密不可分的關係,透過大自然的生命歷程、來表現人生的起落。

 

On the occasion of Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan’s 40th anniversary, internationally renowned choreographer Lin Hwai-min has created Rice to honor the land that has nurtured “Asia’s leading contemporary dance theatre.” (The Times)

The inspiration for Rice came from the landscape and story of Chihshang in the East Rift Valley of Taiwan. Previously tainted by the use of chemical fertilizer, this farming village has now regained its title as Land of Emperor Rice by adopting organic farming.

Awed by the immense waves of grain rolling across expansive fields of rice, and inspired by the environmentally-conscious farmers, Lin took the dancers to Chihshang, where they joined the farmers in harvesting the rice. Out of this experience in the field, Lin has created exuberant yet powerful movements woven through Soil, Wind, Pollen, Sunlight, Grain, Fire and Water, telling the story of the land while contemplating the devastation of Earth.
