Offering

November 27-29th, 2020

In honour and celebration of our 20th anniversary season, choreographer Alvin Erasga Tolentino creates Offering; a collection of works reflective of his past and present work for an ensemble that centres dance as an aspiration for ecological reflection. How do our bodies relate, move and dance for our earthly place at this critical time of environmental adversity? We want dance and movement to gather with our community and together as an interconnected energy to bring an awareness and healing offering.
Event will take place, November 27-29 in partnership with the Roundhouse Community Arts Centre.
