Co.ERASGA Tour to the Philippines


Co.ERASGA presents the company’s newest ensemble creation choreographed by critically acclaimed Vancouver choreographer, Alvin Erasga Tolentino. Collected, Traces and Still Here features seven outstanding dancers from Vancouver and Manila. Tolentino’s quest in this new creation focuses on the transcendent principle of the body’s relation to indigenous traditional arts. CTSH brings traditions alive creating a dynamic continuation of an offering to transport Tolentino’s new visionary dance, and honours and reveals his rich ancient ancestral heritage. The dancers are the canvasses of motion which evoke traditional practices still relevant and existing today, giving light to the shadow of the past, memory in the body and lineage of identity.
