1. Integrating trance, rhythmic breathing and spiral motion, Whirlwind was inspired by Nai-Ni Chen's personal journey along the Silk Road. This is the second work of this series which reflects the nomadic life style of the Mongolian, the ancient mysteries of the old Asiatic cultures, and the traces of ancestors found in the caves of Dunhuang. Through this dance, the choreographer wishes to explore the spiritual richness of another place and time.

Whirlwind by Nai-Ni Chen

The Silk Road is a path of cultural, commerce and idea exchange. The same path that most of the immigrant artists are walking in a different time and space. The struggle to transcend one's own root, fly beyond the bounded vocabulary and expression but honor the same artistic struggle of the pioneers on the path. Whirlwind comes of the observation that when the cool air of the glacier Mountain meets the hot air of the Gobi desert, powerful and magnificent exchange happens.
