About TRIBAL CRACKLING WIND FOR THE ARTS
Tribal Crackling Wind is a distinctive creative force, bringing riveting ritual-based events to acclaim in its native Canada and internationally at prestigious festivals and venues. The company’s repertoire has been shaped by the multi-faceted creativity of Peter Chin's leadership.
Described as a "renaissance man", Peter Chin is a choreographer, composer, designer, writer, director and performer of dance and music. He creates works that potentially engage all of these disciplines, inspired by the Asian paradigm of "Total Theatre". Born in Jamaica of mixed Chinese, black and Irish ancestry, Chin is also a true multicultural soul and his rich heritage has been played out through the company’s repertoire, giving it a genuine international and global character. Within these creations, a who's who of the performing arts have worked with Chin as collaborators and interpreters and become directly involved in the meaning of the work, aspiring to the proverbial merging of art and life.
