Wen-Chung Lin performed with companies such as Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company in New York for almost a decade, earning the moniker “Superb Dancer” from New York’s The Village Voice and becoming one of the few Taiwanese dancers to reach international renown. In 2008, he decided to return to his homeland where he founded WCdance. Blending Eastern and Western influences, Wen-Chung Lin garnered a reputation as an exciting choreographer with a unique and intriguing style.
In Aerodynamics, commissioned by the Macao Arts Festival, through the reorganisation of the stereoscopic dimension of space and time, Lin Wen-chung carefully observes the details of muscle movement and creates a set of movements which demonstrate the motion of the body through the air, with every muscle fibre tense in a trial against gravity. The dancers explore the space and the relationship between the physical and the psychological, only bound by the imagination. The piece will then tour in Taiwan.
The cast includes local dancers who trained with WCdance in Taiwan and symbolizes another great example of cross strait cultural exchange and the endeavour to explore new possibilities in modern dancing.
