"CTSH transcends East and West" — The Georgia Straight.
Co. ERASGA's newest ensemble creation recalls and traces the transcendent principle of the body's relationship to indigenous traditional arts. Choreographed by critically acclaimed Vancouver choreographer Alvin Erasga Tolentino, Collected Traces and Still Here features seven outstanding dancers from Vancouver and Manila. The works embody the use of an indigenous fabric called "Malong" and an ancient hand gesture "Mudras", as the source of inspiration to look back and pay homage to Tolentino's Asian indigenous roots.
Collected Traces and Still Here brings traditions alive to create a dynamic cultural continuation and transport Tolentino's visionary dance across cultures, while honouring ancient ancestral heritage.
