Peter Chin links south and east with Bridge
We've heard of polar opposites, but what about the relationships between adjacent quadrants of the compass? Peter Chin, naturally inclined to find connections between south and east because of his own Chinese-Jamaican heritage, is cooking up new forms of fusion using ingredients from Africa and Indonesia. Bridge, a piece that will bring 27 performers to the du Maurier Theatre Centre stage, opens tomorrow.
To launch the creative process, Chin took his dancers north, to Killarney. There in the Algonquin wilderness, they spent three days rediscovering their own wilder natures. Filmmaker Nick de Pencier made a video of this adventure that has been incorporated into the piece.
