Conceived and choreographed by Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre

Silence, laughter, poetry, drawings, and music filled the atmosphere where A Splinter of Light on All came to life. The images and metaphors of Wang Wei, Zen Buddhist poet and painter of the Tang dynasty in 8th C. China, invited us to observe ourselves and the world around us. The poetic and visual nature of Chinese characters served as a way towards movement.
Béla Bartók’s Mikrokosmos music captures moments of serenity, happiness, or contemplation. Twenty–two bodies became a source of energy, a delight to a choreographer. The dialogue between permanence and impermanence was woven among us. We are excited to share with you our contribution to this never-ending aspect of life and art.
