Choreographic genius Lin Hwai-Min has created a contemporary dance work that makes shadows come alive. Joining forces with leading Chinese visual artist Cai Guo-Qiang, Wind Shadow is a study of motion created through the monochromatic palettes of black and white and the use of light and shade.

Set to a haunting soundscape, the dancers capture the intangible quality of the wind and the variable structure of shadows. Projections of Caiís gunpowder drawings merge into silhouettes and form a moving art installation within which the dancers engage.

The performance contains laser lighting and sound effects of fireworks.
