    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Acclaimed Vancouver dance company Co.ERASGA is back for its 23rd year with another thought-provoking show that will have its world premiere this November.

      Choreographed and performed by Co.ERASGA’s Alvin Erasga Tolentino, Accumulation incorporates movement, sound, costumes, sculpture, and found objects to ask us to confront our relationship with a dying planet.

      What do we own? What do we witness? What responsibility do we have, as temporary inhabitants on this land, to find ways to care for it?

      With an original score composed by Emmanuel Mailly (France), costumes designed by Meagan Woods (New York), lighting design by Tory Ip (Vancouver), and sculptures created by Marc Gerenton (France), Accumulation is an international collaboration of artists who all desire to create work that promotes environmental stewardship.
