“What your eyes perceive is exactly what our hearts hope to express.”  Tao Ye, Choreographer and Founder of Tao Dance Theater

With thrilling theatrical impact, mesmerizing soundscapes, and unrivaled technical virtuosity, TAO Dance Theater of Beijing is taking the world of dance by storm.  In a 2015 World Tour of 4 continents, 14 countries, and more than 20 cities, RIAF 2015 is your only chance in the US to see the hypnotic and mesmerizing creations of choreographer and founder Tao Ye as he stretches the boundaries of imagination and puts you on the cutting edge of creativity. 

"… gripping exploration of magnetic pull, not only between dancers, but between the viewer and the dance.” New York Times

TAO Dance Theater will be performing “Weight X 3” – a triptych set to the music of minimalist composer Steve Reich, in which both the music and the dancers seem caught in never-ending loops and repetitions.  It features two duets (the dancers moving in near unison, reflecting the music’s shifting patterns) and a solo in which a female dancer twirls and manipulates a long staff with amazing speed and dexterity.
