Choreography and Performance: Alvin Erasga Tolentino
VOLT is woven in the spirit of love’s ecstasy and epiphany. It is the electric charge of the body, a kinetic language that depicts and explores what it is that attracts and repels passionate desire, laying out love’s raw, bloody and ever-essential motion and emotion. The dance ignites us under the skin in a deeply personal yet universal experience as it describes a thread of life that is humanly magic and full of awe. It’s a profound, revealing, poignant, and electrically-charged performance.

As an arts organization with roots of Filipino heritages, migrant stories and racialized settlers, we acknowledge our privilege to be living and creating art here on Turtle Island. We acknowledge the land upon which most of Co. ERASGA's work takes place: the traditional and unceded lands of the Coast Salish people including the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) Nations, the original stewards and caretakers of these lands.
As artists, we humbly recognize the continued work that needs to be done on the road to reconciliation. We commit to our own education, sharing of resources and artistries for continued respect, solidarity, awareness towards decolonial relation and work with the Indigenous people of Canada.
