As part of the development of the dance work Faith Project, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers will hold a series of open studio events to present in-progress excerpts and discuss the evolution of the project. Faith Project is a new work by choreographer Kun-Yang Lin that contemplates the relationship between religious practice and contemporary dance. Engaging with practitioners of various religions in story circle encounters, Lin and his company of dancers will consider the role movement plays in religious rituals and actions, and how the artistic process can provide both artists and audience members with a space for exploring religious differences and spiritual commonalities.
