Continuing its collaboration with The Friends of the Rail Park, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D) presents a new site specific work, "行 / Xing" (referring to travel, investigation, and workshopping), at the Rail Park on Friday, September 24th from 6:15-7:00pm. The performance is part of the company's ongoing investigation of CHI-- connecting to oneself, one’s community and the larger world through dance. KYL/D's 10 member ensemble of dance artists, described by audiences as “a balm for the soul” will interweave diverse experiences of dance, music, and guided movements for audiences to experience, witness and join in on. Inspired by the spirit of the ¼ mile section of Phase One of the Rail Park, audiences will find the dance artists located in 2 separate areas, performing simultaneously and allowing viewers to determine which performance to watch or switch between. The performance places emphasis on self-discovery, new journeys and being present. Towards the end of the performance, artists and audiences will meet in the middle of the Rail Park for a closing movement meditation, instilling a sense of common ground and appreciation for nature. Additionally, intermedia artist, composer, inventor, and technologist Daniel Belquer, along with architect, bassist, painter, and composer Cory Neale, will create sound on site at both ends of the Rail Park to create an immersive and collaborative environment. This special curated work represents the captivating response to the essence of the Rail Park – a celebration of togetherness, especially needed in a post-lockdown world. Guests are highly encouraged to wear masks for this 45 min show. For more information visit, therailpark.org/events/
