Filmed over the course of ten years, this documentary by Singing Chen is a poetic expression of the persistence and creativity of Lin Lee-chen, capturing the internationally renowned choreographer’s meditations on life itself. Exquisite imagery of layered cloth and contours of dancers’ bodies invite the audience to see with a tactile eye.
Legend Lin Dance Theatre Artistic Director Lin Lee-chen and renowned Hong Kong theatre actor Andy Ng Wai-shek will be in conversation after the screening, discussing their experiences and methods with “the body”.
Born in Taiwan in 1950, Lin Lee-chen is a graduate of the Department of Dance at Chinese Culture University. Lin attracted attention among the artistic circle after garnering national awards for five consecutive years and had an enormous influence on dance and theater productions in Taiwan.
In 2002, Lin was named among the eight most significant choreographers in the world by ARTE, one of the most important art and culture television channels in Europe, being the only representative originated from Asia. With inspiration by the Taiwanese local religious rituals and ceremonial rites celebrating the rhythms of nature and our place in it, Lin received Taiwan's most prestigious award for arts in 2005 even she is not beholden to any overseas schools.
