Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYLD) developed Crossing, a new contemporary dance work by artistic director and Taiwanese choreographer Kun-Yang Lin. Crossing is a work in six sections that explores the significance of “crossings,” both geographically and emotionally, mapping the personal development of transitions and life changes. The work incorporated Lin’s distinctive movement style that draws on Eastern and Western cultural influences to create a hybrid contemporary dance form. Marking KYLD’s first performance in Philadelphia after relocating from New York, Crossing premiered in February 2007 at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.
