Frequently infused with references to local religious rituals and ceremonial rites, Taiwanese choreographer Lin Lee-Chen’s works celebrate poetry in dance. The Eternal Tides transports the audience to a transformational destination. Now boarding.

Lin Lee-Chen’s perseverance was instrumental in putting her native island on the international dance map. Legend Lin’s practice blends elements of religious rituals, traditional Taiwanese rites, and a more meditative vision. In these choreographic “ceremonies”, humans commune with nature and heaven in time with the seasons. The Eternal Tides is a journey through lives with their joys and sorrows, a voyage where each of us has to find our own way. Like the earlier Song of Pensive Beholding, the piece carries a strong environmental theme. Balanced and harmonious, performed by large ensembles of remarkable dancers, the work is intimate and moving. The miracle of a language that is both universal and highly codified? No doubt. With this offering to nature, Legend Lin turns the stage into a limitless horizon.
