Colonial at the Scotiabank Dance Centre

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      To mark the 116th year of Philippines’ independence, but also to launch his upcoming tour of that country, choreographer-performer Alvin Erasga Tolentino is remounting his multimedia Colonial at the Scotiabank Dance Centre on Wednesday and Thursday (June 11 and 12).

      Created in a cross-Pacific collaboration with Philippine artists, the solo work travels to the primordial heart of the precolonial archipelago, then into imagery of Spanish colonialization, and finally the American cultural invasion. It’s a thought-provoking trip, led by a charismatic dancer.
