'A Splinter of Light on All': Luther College's Vazquez-Aguirre to present original choreography Jan. 26

Drawing inspiration from Di Shu – Chinese contemporary calligraphy art – and the poems of Wang Wei, one of the greatest poets of China, Luther College's Visual and Performing Arts department presents "A Splinter of Light on All," an original dance piece conceived and choreographed by Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre, Luther visiting assistant professor of dance.

"A Splinter of Light on All" will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, in Storre Theatre on the Luther College campus. The performance is open to the public with no charge for admission.

Vazquez-Aguirre says, "Under the umbrella of the impermanence theme of this year's productions, this collective endeavor aspires to portray the dynamic and ephemeral nature of life. We will draw inspiration from Di Shu, a Chinese contemporary calligraphy art, the works of Wang Wei, one of the greatest poets of China, and music by Hungarian composer, Bela Bartok."  

Vazquez-Aguirre received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in choreography from Escuela Nacional de Danza Clásica y Contemporánea in Mexico City, and a master's degree of fine arts in dance from SUNY Brockport.

A national liberal arts college with an enrollment of 2,400, Luther offers an academic curriculum that leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree in more than 60 majors and pre-professional programs. For more information about Luther visit the college's website: http://www.luther.edu.
