Collected, Traces, and Still Here returns in 2018 at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Featuring seven outstanding dancers from Vancouver and Manila, Tolentino’s quest in this new creation recalls and traces transcendent principle of the body’s relation to indigenous traditional arts. This full evening of two debut works embodies the use of an indigenous fabric called “Malong” and an ancient hand gesture “Mudras”, which become the source of inspiration to look back and pay homage to Tolentino’s Asian indigenous roots.
