The final dance in Lin Wen-chung’s ‘Small’ series will be a quiet and ultra-minimalist exploration of emptiness

By Diane Baker  /  Staff reporter

“I was asked to do my next production for TIAF [the National Theater Concert Hall’s Taiwan International Arts Festival] in March, so I can’t do too many places because I have to start on the new piece,” Lin said.

While he said that work, scheduled for the Experimental Theater, would feature nanguan (南管) music again, he was less sure about what direction he would take his company now that he is finished with small things.

“I don’t know yet,” he said. “But for now I need more freedom, to take forms and restrictions out.”
