Huang Pei-hua and Tsai Ming-yuan perform in a segment titled “Pollen II” during the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan’s performance of “Rice” at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 31, 2016. The piece is inspired by the life cycle of rice. The dancers embody soil, sunlight, wind, water and fire. Their movements are set against a backdrop of videography of Taiwan’s East Rift Valley that captures the flooding of the fields, the sprouting of seeds, the harvesting of the grain and the burning of the stalks.
