Showcasing the company’s original FoCo Technique, as well as its signature sleek physicality, “Through The Fracture of Light” demonstrates the versatility and range of its dancers as well as Yin Yue’s ability to weave strong rhythmic movement with quiet grace and agility. Fierce group sections seamlessly transition into duets and then back again, culminating with a group composition that grows and amplifies in intensity. The audience is brought to their emotional edge as dancers push on tirelessly toward this final energetic apex. The original score of lingering stringed sounds, Tibetan throat singing and Mongolian melodies enhances the experience of the piece’s elegantly designed choreography and precise, dynamic execution.
