To his own tune

Lin Hwai-min, the artistic director of Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan, needs a cigarette. The 64-year-old choreographer is on a one-day whirlwind visit to Hong Kong to promote his company's youth, educational and outreach arm, Cloud Gate 2, and after a couple of hours meeting with the press he is ready for a break.

Learning Cursive

IT'S TAKEN LIN Hwai-min, artistic director of Taiwan's Cloud Gate Dance Theatre, five years to bring his latest work, Cursive III, to the stage. The final part of the so-called cursive trilogy fuses complicated calligraphy with contemporary choreography, and requires the dancers to be as wild and freewheeling as the brush strokes of kuang cao.
