This article is devoted to Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan (Yunmen Wuji), modern dance and its search for Taiwanese identity in a globalized, cosmopolitan society at the end of the 20th century. The author analyses three choreographic works by Lin Huaimin, the founder of Yunmen Wuji: Legacy (Xinchuan, 1978), My Nostalgia , My Songs (Wo de xiangchou, wo de ge, 1986) and Portraits of the Families (Jiazu hechang, 1997). The analysis focuses not only on the formal aspects of the dances but on their role in shaping the cultural and socio-political identity of the Taiwanese in the seventies, eighties and nineties as well
