Opening The Gate is a ‘throbbing, swirling spectacle’ (Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times) that evokes a ritualistic passage to freedom. Choreographed by H.T. Chen and using a commissioned score by Bradley Kaus with live drumming by dancers and musicians, the work speaks of the struggle to one’s fulfillment through a progression or evolution.
