Bridge Dance Festival: Rika Lin - "Beyond The Box II - Yu (遊)"

Event Type
Event Description

The Bridge Dance Festival culminates with Beyond The Box II - Yu (遊) , a continuation of Rika Lin's 'Beyond the Box' series. Roughly translated "Yu" means "do something with joy" -- this work boldly and creatively deviates from the accepted norm in traditional Japanese performance practices by making space for female performers to embody the full range of emotional and physical expression, strength, and power, subverting the gender roles in traditional Kabuki dance. The strength of Lin's rebellion is a powerful capstone for the Bridge Dance Festival.
