The concert is to be held from February 21st through February 22nd at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Lin is recognised worldwide for bringing Asian dance culture on to a wider international platform and audience. The routines are composed with unique lyrical and meditative choreography drawing from martial arts, ballet and calligraphy.
