EA TORRADO

Artistic Director

Cited as one of the most exciting and sought-after contemporary dancer-choreographers in the Philippines today, Ea creates visceral and evocative works that have been presented in numerous sites and stages in Manila and abroad. Rigorously trained in classical ballet from a young age, Ea has essayed principal and soloist roles in traditional and contemporary full-length dances with Ballet Manila, Ballet Philippines, and Dance Theatre of Tennessee. Her works have been presented and toured extensively in the Philippines, USA, Russia, Scotland, Japan, Cambodia, Thailand, Korea, Belgium and Germany.

In 2015 and 2016, she was one of the formidable judges for the Association of Ballet Academies of the Philippines Competition.

She is the founder and artistic director of Manila-based dance theatre group, Daloy Dance Company, where she refines her choreographic style by fusing powerful elements of dance, theatre and improvisation. With Daloy, she has presented Walang Hiya Festival, Sayaw Galaw, Ugnayan Community Porgram and Tanghal at Talakay, all projects that tapped diverse Filipino communities by utilizing dance as a tool for personal and social change.
