    PETER CHIN (Canada), multidisciplinary dance-artist from Toronto presents a new site-specific dance solo especially created for The Other Festival. His cultural and artistic background is breathtakingly diverse, and is reflected in his award-winning work. Born in Jamaica of Chinese, Irish and Afican descent, Chin emigrated to Toronto where he has become one of Canada's brightest artistic forces. Peter Chin is respected and sought after as a choreographer / dancer, composer / musician, designer and director. He has presented his work across Canada at major dance and music festivals, and internationally in Japan, Singapore, Holland, Jamaica, and the United States. Peter Chin has also presented work at festivals in Indonesia, where he was  based between 1990 and 1997. This is Mr Chin's first presentation in India.   

    For the Other Festival Peter Chin dances in a work entitled DAG. He will create spontaneously within a rigorous temporal, spatial and sonic framework, in a work that responds directly to the surrounding environment of the specific site. The tension between the fixed and free elements of DAG will inform the body language of Mr Chin as he moves from sensuous to warrior-like to ferile and beyond.
