Denisa Reyes’s NEOFILIPINO once again bolts to the stage with new works from some of the most persistent voices in Philippine contemporary dance. Beginning in New York in 1987, NEOFILIPINO is a platform for Filipino choreographers to make dance the central force, the impetus, and the muscle in collaborating with the other art forms: music, visual arts, literature, theatre, literature and film.
Dance artists aired experimental and provocative works that spoke of inquiries about Philippine contemporary life through dance. This year's "TAKE OFF" premiers four original pieces by Raul Alcoseba, Jose Jay Cruz, Ma. Elena Laniog, Kris-Belle Paclibar-Mamangun, and Ronelson Yadao, interpreted by the country’s leading performers; Candice and Carissa Adea, PJ Rebullida, Jed Amihan, Mia Cabalfin, and the UP Dance Company among others.
