UNEARTHING

“Daloy’s distinct orientation is away from the conventional idea of what contemporary dancing is expected to be. Unafraid to explore awkward shapes or deal with simplistic narratives, the Daloy Dance Company presses forward in their offering of a very different kind of contemporary dance show for the Filipino audience.” – Wanggo Gallaga, Manila Bulletin

The process of Unearthing began four years ago, when the piece was commissioned as part of Sipat Lawin's Karnabal Festival for Social Performance Innovation and developed subsequently over the next two years in festivals and performance series around Manila and across Japan. The work is a choreographic exploration into the relationship between the carnal and the spiritual, the sacred and the sexual. Through intuitive movement investigations into first the sensuous, then the ecstatic, and finally, the mythic; Ea Torrado and Daloy's corps of dancers have assembled a fierce and primal homage to the filipino babaylan (the balance-bringing shaman-priestess) and to the ancient wisdom of the Sacred Feminine. The dance pushes pleasure forward unabashedly, pulling the dancers through a tantric spectrum of frenzied somatic release.

 

Unearthing transforms performance into community ritual, foregrounding the social being as a sacred being.
