Canton Atbp: Two Faces of Filipino Society Portrayed Through Dance

It is never easy to stop thinking after watching a performance of Daloy Dance Company. It is always amazing how its members are able to communicate message and trigger thoughts even in the absence of words. Even the way they put things together is admirable.

It was the same of realization I had after seeing “Canton Atbp.” at Tanghalang Batutue at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Like “Reconfigure,” it was part of this year’s Fringe Manila Arts Festival. The twin bill production consisted of “Canton” and “Himalaya.”


Daloy Dance Company’s ‘Reconfigure’: Contemplating about Self-Perception and Symbolic Rebirth

Whenever we talk about self-perception and symbolic rebirth, we usually focus on the bigger picture. We pay so much attention on what we see at the moment, unaware of the forces that come into play to get to that outcome.

Daloy Dance Company tries to reveal these forces in “Reconfigure,” a twin bill production composed of “Dysmorphilia” and “The Sky Changed.” We were lucky to see the show last February 22 at the SDA Theater of the De La Salle-College of Benilde. It was part of Fringe Manila’s Arts Festival .
