EXpose: World Premiere April 14-16, 2011
Presented as part of The Dance Centre's Global Dance Connections series, EXpose premieres April 14-16. A new collaboration between Vancouver's own Alvin Erasga Tolentino, Artistic Director of Co. ERASGA, whose sophisticated works have toured around the world and Martin Inthamoussú, a driving force in Uruguay's contemporary dance scene, whose passionate works grapple with provocative socio-political ideas.
These two charismatic performers seek to expose the complexity of the personal and public territories within the gay psyche, creating a spellbinding theatrical and physical dialogue. The work also features an original score by Marc Stewart, with lighting design by Phil Birkby.
