Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center presents Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers
October 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D) is one of the country’s premier contemporary Asian-American dance companies, described as “deeply spiritual” by Dance Magazine. Hailed for superbly trained dancers and inventive choreography, KYL/D celebrates the ability of dance to integrate body, spirit and mind, inviting viewers to engage in their own journeys of self-discovery. Proceeding from a rich frame informed by living traditions, contemplative practices, and diverse philosophies of Asian origin, KYL/D creates world-class dance that integrates virtuosity with humanity. Founder and Executive Artistic Director, Kun-Yang Lin’s zen-inspired practice of dance manifests in lush works of poetic sensibility that the New York Times says “create and inhabit worlds of their own.” KYL/D’s debut evening length performance at the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center will include signature repertoire, including Moon, Chi, Santuario, and a preview of the company’s new work, Fish & Girl.
