Kun-Yang Lin Dancers
The critically-acclaimed and internationally active Kun-Yang Lin Dancers utilize diverse influences from Taiwan, such as calligraphy, martial arts, tai chi and traditional Chinese dance movements expressing these impulses in a thoroughly contemporary way. The dancers draw upon its unique Asian-American perspective to create work that transcends cultural boundaries and celebrates the ability of dance to integrate body, mind and spirit. Watch as they perform their “Mandala Project”, a piece inspired by Buddhist ritual and Eastern philosophical notions of impermanence and not-self. In his groundbreaking, contemporary works, Lin has developed a personal movement language that is an unexpected hybrid of Western and Eastern cultures. It is an expression of one’s selflessness in motion.
