‘Koryolab 2023: In the Round’ presents contemporary dance works by Filipino choreographers

Koryolab 2023: In the Round will feature three original contemporary dance works by Filipino choreographers Aaron Kaiser Garcia from Tacloban, Raflesia Bravo from Manila, and Tin Gamboa from Vancouver, Canada.

The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Choreographers Series continues to be the prime mover of contemporary dance in the Philippines with the return of Koryolab on August 19 and 20 at the Tanghalang Ignacio B. Gimenez (CCP Blackbox Theater).

Koryolab 2023: In the Round will feature three original contemporary dance works by Filipino choreographers Aaron Kaiser Garcia from Tacloban, Raflesia Bravo from Manila, and Tin Gamboa from Vancouver, Canada.

Under the mentorship of Filipino choreographers Denisa Reyes and Paul Ocampo, the three choreographer-performers seek to find new ways of choreographing and conceptualizing dance.  Their works highlight Koryolab’s spirit of experimentation by eschewing the proscenium setting and opting instead for a circular sharing of energies and space between audience and performers “in the round”.

Gamboa’s dama aims to evoke the audience’s senses through real-time sounding and movement-making, and invites the audience to share the performance through deep listening, communal rhythm, and embodiment. Bravo’s Baba-I-lan is an ethno-tale in physical theater, with a narrative that fleshes out the interconnectedness of Baba (source), I (the self), and Lan (the land). Garcia’s E X P O [ S E] explores the manifestations of culture-making on the body as it examines how the Filipino body is exploited in reimagining/recreating “Filipino” culture through embodiment and performance.

 Koryolab 2023: In the Round is directed by dancer and choreographer Christine Crame, with set design by Tuxqs Rutaquio. Institutional partners are Guang Ming College, Asian Institute of Maritime Studies, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, and Far Eastern University.

Koryolab 2023: In the Round will run on August 19, 2pm and 7pm, and August 20, 2pm at the Tanghalang Ignacio Gimenez, CCP Complex. Tickets (Php 500) are available at Ticketworld https://premier.ticketworld.com.ph/shows/show.aspx?sh=KORYOLAB23
