In the bodies of his dancers, flesh and spirit melt together, inextricably woven together in their gestures. Both flesh and spirit are lifted up and appear only as immaterial reflexes in a transcendental power. This knowledge and ability lifts Lin above many of his contemporaries.
«Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung»
Dancers' bodies resembled calligraphy in motion, and calligraphic patterns looked ready to dance. Dancing and calligraphy merged here into a single art of motion. Yet a knowledge of foreign languages was not necessary to understand them. Cursive affirmed the glory of beauty itself
«The New York Times»
"Cursive", the breathtaking, perception-altering work... is a masterpiece of form and feeling.
Building brilliantly on one of the most ancient and important visual arts of the East, it digs deep into the essence of calligraphy and comes up with a gorgeous equivalent of this art form in both movement and music.
In the process, something altogether new and stunningly modern emerges.
The 19 dancers of the Cloud Gate company possess a control and articulation that verge on the superhuman. These are performers who can make stillness every bit as eloquent as animation. In fact, they have the power to change your metabolism
