“Like visual poetry, Chen’s phrases, part exoskeletal rigidity, part boneless grace, embodied an epic dignity.” -The Village Voice
The Kinetic Spiral technique centers around the exploration of a wide range of physically challenging, intricate movement ideas that combines the grace, sensibility, delicacy, and flow of motion driven by the proper use of the breath, building a foundation to support the limitless spiral energy that supports the powerful athletic movements inspired by the common ground found in Chinese martial art, calligraphy, graffiti and contemporary dance.
