Passages & Rhythms

November 6-9th, 2019
The Nest
Granville Island

“The dancers mixed flamenco’s pummelling feet with fans – fluttering devices that bridge the worlds of Spain and Asia.”

Janet Smith, Georgia Straight (Passages & Rhythms excerpt at Dancing on the Edge, July 2018)

In this work, choreographer and dancer Alvin Erasga Tolentino returns to the stage; merging three duets while working with three diverse artists across three different genres – Flamenco, Bharatanatyam, and voice – Passages & Rhythms is a full-length evening of cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural collaboration.

Tolentino will embark on a new journey of creative research, collaborating with Vancouver’s Chinese-Canadian Flamenco artist Kasandra “La China”, Indo-Canadian Bharatanatyam dancer Sujit Vaidya, and Montreal voice artist phenomena Gabriel Dharmoo. Tolentino’s quest in this new phase of work is to challenge his choreographic method through inter-generational exchange and by sharing the different practices of Pan-Asian rigour across disciplines.
