Part of Dance Umbrella 2009, choreographic master Lin Hwai-Min has created a contemporary dance work that makes shadows come alive. Joining forces with leading Chinese visual artist Cai Guo-Qiang, WIND SHADOW is a study of motion created through monochromatic palettes and the use of light and shadow. Set to a haunting soundscape, the dancers capture the intangible quality of the wind and the variable structure of shadows. Projections of Cais gunpowder drawings merge into silhouettes and form a moving art installation within which the dancers engage with their independent shadows.
