Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers presents a public sharing of the insights gleaned through Where is my B-O-D-Y, an investigation of new movement methods for artists navigating lives as mature creators with physical limitations.

Since January 2021, company founder Kun-Yang Lin has collaborated with dance artists Gus Solomons jr and Pallabi Chakravorty to explore the questions: “How do I rediscover my own body?” and “How do I transmit effectively when my body is failing me?” All three artists have been professional performers, professors, and directors of their own companies but vary in age, artistic sensibility, and cultural background.

The project culminates with two free community showings that will each include dialogue, movement demonstrations, and an audience Q&A.

Dates:

Seating is limited. Free tickets must be reserved in advance by emailing katie@kyld.org.
