About this show

U Theatre, one of Taiwan's most celebrated troupes, makes its BAM debut with The Sound of Ocean, a rhythmically propelled, intensely physical exploration of water's cyclical journey from mere drop to stream to river and, ultimately, to the sea. For 100 seamless minutes, the performers--all supremely athletic--move effortlessly from stately tai chi-like movement, meditation, and Buddhist-inspired singing and chanting to virtuosic playing of temple bells, gongs, cymbals, precisely tuned metal bowls, and skinned drums of various sizes. The piece is Directed and choregraphed by Liu Ching-ming.
