”In the most enchantingly evocative fashion, choreographer Kun-Yang Lin’s new evening-length work, “Beyond the Bones,” transports us back to the beginnings of humanity and deep into the wellsprings of our beings. ” – Backstage

The Bride welcomes back one of Philadelphia’s most heralded dance companies, Kun Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D) for their exclusive 2012 home season performance engagement. Living up to his reputation as a choreographer who “combines a fresh approach to conventional craft with a commitment to contemporary social-consciousness” – Backstage, Kun-Yang Lin works through his lens as an immigrant artist grappling with the complexities of Eastern and Western dualities. On the heels of company’s world premiere of Mandala Project: Entering the Circle last February fans can expect a full evening of dance featuring both brand new works as well as familiar signature favorites.

Bones: the seat of affections, the place of deepest feelings. Within them, mind and instincts mingle and speak with a voice beyond the flow of time. Set on a collage of Eastern and  Western music, Beyond the Bones ranges through world cultures’ and religions’ various mythologies to surpass consciousness in the search for purity. Beyond the Bones uses visual richness and bold imagery to speak a  soul-seeking journey through our personal and public fear to a sense of wonder and celebration of life.
