Founded by choreographer Yin Yue, Yin Yue Dance is a New York City-based contemporary modern dance company. Yin's works are dynamic and unique, the sensual yet powerful quality of her movement compliments the strong physical technique on which it relies. Yin Yue creates bold and entertaining and exciting performances about emotional experiences, conflicts and relationship, expressed through a wide range of dance styles. Yin Yue Dnace promotes and exemplifies physical power in movement, utilizing controlled, subtle and precise gestures to reflect emotions in highly structured form. A combination of grace, effortless and explosiveness finds harmony and balance in each work.
The company’s mission is to explore the passion in movement, to investigate the subtle yet powerful visual images, to search the honest gesture and dig deeply into the story of life in order to explore the unique personality and quality of each dancer and bring the essence out in each performance.
"Yin Yue's work often lives in a menacing world, hinting that at any moment things could get out of hand. They usually don't, but that controlled tension and the sparse lighting and chilling soundscapes she favors add to an ominous atmosphere that Ms. Yin punctures with quick, precise gestures or paints with melting bodies."
