WEST CHESTER, PA — Philadelphia’s Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers are making their debut at Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center on Friday, October 22 at 7:30 PM.
One of the country’s premier contemporary Asian-American dance companies, described as “deeply spiritual” by Dance Magazine, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers celebrate the ability of dance to integrate body, spirit and mind.
Under the direction of Executive Artistic Director Kun-Yang Lin, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers weave together older pieces with relevant contemporary works that reflect the social themes of climate change, gun violence and the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
The company’s performance at Uptown! will feature Chi, a piece inspired by the ancient art forms of tai chi and calligraphy, Santuario, described as “stunning and profoundly moving” by HuffPost, and a preview of the company’s latest work Fish & Girl.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers to Uptown!,” said April Evans, executive director of Uptown!. “The dancers create such a unique experience that transcends audiences into another world.”
The evening will culminate with a Q&A, allowing the audience and artists to exchange dialogue, questions, ideas, and connections made when viewing and performing the work.
