Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, one of the country’s premier contemporary Asian-American dance companies, will perform at Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center on Friday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 PM.
Hailed as “deeply spiritual,” the Philadelphia-based 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 around the social themes of climate change, gun violence, and the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
The 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.
