The much acclaimed and respected Legend Lin Dance Theatre from Taiwan has only created 3 productions in the 16 years since it was established. Such dedication and patience has won its recognition all over Europe and LIN Li-chen, Artistic Director, has been nominated as one of the 8 most influential contemporary choreographers by ARTE, Europe's leading art TV channel. The aesthetics of Legend Lin is inseparable from its body training system, which emphasizes power generated from concentration, serenity, flexibility. Focused spine training aims to make the dancers' spine as flexible as a whip. The more relaxed the spine is, the more powerful the energy transmitted.
LCSD commissioned Hong Kong Dance Alliance to conduct a workshop targeting professional dancers in August 2011 when Legend Lin Dance Theatre visited Hong Kong for activities related to Asian Cultural Festival 2011. Professionals will not only have the opportunity to experience this exclusive training system themselves, but also understand LIN Li-chen's aesthetics through a conversation session led by Aaron Wan.
