Peter Chin work travels to Southeast Asia

By Cindy Brett

Following its successful cross-country Canadian tour, Tribal Crackling Wind took Peter Chin’s Transmission of the Invisible to Phnom Pehn, Cambodia, and Singapore’s Da:ns Festival in October 2009. Transmission of the Invisible, which premiered February 2008 at Toronto’s Enwave Theatre, explores Cambodia’s efforts to renew and preserve its dance culture after 90 percent of the country’s artists were killed during the Cambodian genocide of the Khmer Rouge era. The piece was created in collaboration with both Canadian and Cambodian artists over more than three years of research and in June 2009 it appeared at the Canada Dance Festival as part of “Dancing Through Cultures”.
