Length: 55 minutes
The Western Front and Centre A have joined forces to present the collaboration of two of Vancouver’s leading contemporary Asian Artists. An electric and enigmatic glass installation by Japanese glass artist Miyuki Shinkai serves as the setting for a stunning solo dance performance by acclaimed choreographer and dance Alvin Erasga Tolentino. Breaking the boundaries through experimentation, the two artists stretches their vision and join forces to create this unique dialogue, a work of art that pays homage to the undying memories of their past and present heritage and generations. Minori delivers an originality, a visual feast, a poetic physical expression as fresh to the senses and as close to the heart.

As an arts organization with roots of Filipino heritages, migrant stories and racialized settlers, we acknowledge our privilege to be living and creating art here on Turtle Island. We acknowledge the land upon which most of Co. ERASGA's work takes place: the traditional and unceded lands of the Coast Salish people including the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) Nations, the original stewards and caretakers of these lands.
As artists, we humbly recognize the continued work that needs to be done on the road to reconciliation. We commit to our own education, sharing of resources and artistries for continued respect, solidarity, awareness towards decolonial relation and work with the Indigenous people of Canada.
