// about Co.ERASGA

We are a contemporary dance company founded on the principles of innovation, artistic integrity and social reflection.

Founded by choreographer and dancer Alvin Erasga Tolentino in 2000, Co.ERASGA has a distinguished international reputation of a singular vision of hybrid dance, diversity and collaborations of other artistic practice and multimedia. At the heart of Co.ERASGA is Artistic Director Alvin Erasga Tolentino, a Filipino-Canadian artist of remarkable commitment, talent and energy, whose diverse cultural background and heritage has been a driving force for much of the company’s work. In addressing themes that reflect Tolentino’s individuality, global awareness and ethnicity, Co.ERASGA

exposes and explores issues of cultural identity, gender, hybridity, and promotes cross-cultural dialogue.

Celebrating its 19th anniversary in 2019, Co.ERASGA has created critically acclaimed contemporary dance productions: SOLA, BATO/Stone, MINORI, Volt, She Said, Field, OrienTik/Portrait, BODYGlass, PARADISE/Paradis, ADAMEVE/Man-Woman, Shadow Machine, EXpose, Unwrapping Culture, and most recently Collected, Traces and Still Here.
