Could you describe to us what contemporary dance is to you and what role you see yourself playing in the field?

To me, contemporary dance is an ongoing dialogue on the subject of dance itself… I would describe contemporary dance as an ongoing process of asking questions. Particularly staring back at our premises and assumptions on the universality of the ‘body,’ movement and the ‘dance.’ Here at home [in Manila], I would like to propose a parallel dance practice that emphasizes dance as a forum for research on what it means to live in our body and in society rather than the more emotional, “I dance to express myself.”
