BODYGlass is a seduction into the fragility, translucence and solid state of glass in relation to the human body and sensation. Glass, scientifically classified as a slow moving form object, symbolizes, fascinates and offers an enigma. Glass as a three-dimensional entity symbolizes the state and mystery of the moving body. Co.ERASGA brings together the choreographic artistry and collaboration of Canada’s two outstanding Asian Canadian choreographers, Toronto’s Peter Chin and Vancouver’s own Alvin Erasga Tolentino. Discover BODYGlass, an awe-inspiring, multi-media and dramatic site specific art installation/dance performance set to an ensemble of five eclectic dancers.
“BODYGlass is an ambitious piece. The choreography is detailed and highly expressive. The dancing was energetic and lively, with many moments of beautiful motion..” Vancouver Review Magazine.
