Peter Chu Residency

  • Centennial Arts and Activities Center West End Ave Nashville, TN United States (map)

Peter Chu will join us again this April, and this time he'll be working to create a new duet on Banning and Ana Maria Lucaciu. He will also be teaching an open-to-the-public Master Class Series.  

As a BFA student at The Julliard School (under the direction of Benjamin Harkarvy), Chu was pushed further as a technical mover and began an explosive journey into choreography. Upon graduation, he was awarded the Hector Zaraspe Prize for Choreography.

As a performer he has danced with BJM _Danse, EZdanza, as the lead in singer Christina Perri’s Jar of Hearts music video, in Celine Dion’s Vegas spectacular A New Day, and with Crystal Pite’s company, Kidd Pivot.

In 2008, Chu formed his own project-based company chuthis. Most recently the company performed its wildly popular show, Nothing Sticks, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Chu’s company has also been selected as the 2014 Emerging Principal Company for Springboard Danse Montréal.

Here's a video that shows Peter moving and talking about why movement is so important to him.
