A 90 min program will feature three unique dance works, the most recent creation Vanishing Point, a solo performance by Artistic Director Yin Yue in its virtuoso improvisation form, and rounds off the night with dynamic powerhouse full company casts repertory Through the Fracture of Light.
Vanishing Point, a new work of 5 dancers, was created through the generous support of 92Y Harkness Dance Center’s Artist in Residency program. Yin Yue abstracts the concept of vanishing point in perspective drawing by placing this 2 dimensional concept into a 3D space on stage. The work plays up space harmony and depth perception between the dancers within the space. The work takes the abstract idea one step further into the emotional depth of existence and disappearance as well as the interaction between the performers.
New York Times Critic Brian Schaefer describes Yin’s solo in his NYTimes listing “controlled tension and the sparse lighting and chilling soundscape she favors add to an ominous atmosphere that Ms. Yin punctures with quick, precise gestures or paints with melting bodies.” Her improvised solo, an excerpt from full length production Within Reach, will be nothing short of her signature razor sharp strike and water like movement. The live performance of this solo won First Place in Choreography in Shanghai Professional Dance Competition in 2016.
Through the Fracture of Light, a full company work, premiered in March 2016 at Schrit_tmacher Festival in Aachen Germany. The work features original music by Juliane Jones and Doug Beiden. The work as also been featured on platforms like SummerStage 2017, Open Doors Dance Festival, and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.
