Peter Chin discovered dance later in his life and applies different facets of his personal life to his movements. Dancers discuss why they enjoy collaborating with the choreographer. Chin trained in classical music.
Because he was not trained in dance, Chin felt insecure when he initially started choreographing but began to see the value in his work. Watch an excerpt of "Converse." Peter Pavlovski enjoys working with Chin because of his unique point of view and training in classical music.
Robert Desrosiers and Chin discuss his interest in traveling to Southeast Asian cultures. The choreographer incorporates movements that he feels he once performed in another life, particularly martial arts techniques.
Watch an excerpt of "Tari Rickshaw." Even though he was born in Jamaica, Chin grew up in Toronto. When the choreographer first began to dance, he seemed to emulate Asian movements.
Chin began collecting textiles in earnest when he traveled to Asia for the first time; Sumatra is one of his favorite places to collect cloth. Face dancing fascinates the choreographer because he likes to use the entire body.
Dancers describe incorporating face dancing into their dancing. Watch an excerpt of "Streetcar." Desrosiers and Chin compare how they began to dance and improve movement.
