A highly anticipated YYDC 2017 season performance will run for two weekends at Peridance Capezio Theater.
The 90 min program will feature a world premiere Vanishing Point, a solo performance by Artistic Director Yin Yue in its virtuoso improvisation form, and rounds off the night with dynamic powerhouse 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.
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 Within Reach will be nothing short of her signature razor sharp strike and water like movement. Be sure to look out for elements of her long-developed movement research FoCo Technique in this solo.
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.
