Performance Notes


Co.ERASGA’s newest ensemble creation recalls and traces transcendent principle of the body’s relation to indigenous traditional arts choreographed by critically acclaimed Vancouver choreographer, Alvin Erasga Tolentino. Featuring seven outstanding dancers from Vancouver and Manila, the works embodies the use of an indigenous fabric called “Malong” and an ancient hand gesture “Mudras”, the source of inspiration to look back and pay homage to Tolentino’s Asian indigenous roots. Mudras – an ancient hand gesture that holds a sacred and medicinal effect on the body and Malong – a Filipino indigenous fabric used in daily life. Semiotically and metaphorically these languages of traditional arts awaken genetic memory. The dancers are the canvases of motion giving light to the shadow of the past, memory in the body and lineage of identity – the body attains the expression of the physical and metaphysical. 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 .
