“Eleven works were displayed throughout the evening; highlighting a diverse array of talent which reached beyond the bounds of traditional concert dance and explored just what becomes possible when one is encouraged to experiment with performative movement.” ~Winfield Mabin for The Dance Journal
“In a city like Philadelphia where even the established companies find themselves vying for the same audiences, it’s easy for emerging artists to get overlooked. Fortunately, the quarterly InHale Performance Series, hosted by Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers at the CHI Movement Arts Center, gives up-and-coming choreographers a much needed and well deserved chance to strut their stuff.” ~Kat Richter for The Dance Journal
KYL/D’s InHale Performance Series offers a supportive environment that fosters creative exchange of ideas, cultivates community, and provides opportunities for members of the public to experience a wide spectrum of dance/ movement disciplines.
Selected artists, who are chosen via an application process, receive free performance space, technical assistance and audience feedback.
To date, KYL/D has presented over 800 movement artists from PA and beyond including from DC, NY, VA, MD, MA, CT, IL, NC, and MI. The shows fill to capacity!
