Even that kid who destroyed the Tibetan monks sand art at Union Station should know this about Southeast Asian culture: Theres great value in patience. In China, that acute attention to small details is evident in calligraphy, which is the inspiration for a performance tonight by Taiwans Cloud Gate Dance Theatre
at KUs Lied Center (1600 Stewart Drive, Lawrence). Dancers use their movements to mimic the calligraphic shapes on white rice paper as it cascades to the floor. Choreographed by Lin Hwai-min, the 70-minute performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets run $17 to $34. Call 785-864-3469.
