The Awkward Stage
Duet from Pieces of Trust
Lost, Found, Lost, with 7 additional dancers from Temple and Drexel Universities performing alongside the company!
The Mind-Stuff Variations, JB&D's 2011 premiere described as "profoundly moving."

"The pinnacle of the evening was choreographer/dancer Janis Brenner's solo danced by Lin....drawing a haunting soundscape from music by Tan Dun and Ushio Torikai. In 60 yards of bronze silk skirting, Lin draped his body with origamilike precision, making organic images: a molten mire from which he emerges as a pillar of fire, a boulder that shape-shifts into an old beggar. Or were these images reversed? No matter. The magic was not just in the watching but in the mirage that lingers in shadowy light" (Merilyn Jackson, Philadelphia Inquirer, February 2009).
