  • DANCE DANCE ASIA: Crossing the Movements in Manila
  • The Japan Foundation Asia Center and PARCO Co., Ltd. in collaboration with the De La Salle University Culture and Arts Office are pleased to present DANCE DANCE ASIA — Crossing the Movements in Manila, featuring a collaborative performance on street dance, hip-hop, jazz, and contemporary dance created by emerging directors and dancers from across Asia.

    DANCE DANCE ASIA aspires to create new cultural currents by co-producing and staging street dance performances that encourage collaboration and interaction between dancers and artists in Asia. Over the past few years, street dance performances have attracted attention as a new style of artistic expression not only from dancers but from theater, film, and performing artists. DANCE DANCE ASIA has played a leading role in this new movement in the region.

    Now in its fourth year, DANCE DANCE ASIA sets out on a tour to present three performances, which premiered in Tokyo in December 2016, by a trio of choreographer-directors — MIKEY (TOKYO GEGEGAY, Japan), Vince Mendoza “Crazybeans” (Philippine All Stars, Philippines), and LION T (Vietnam )— bringing together dancers from a wide range of cultural backgrounds in a unique fusion of vibrant artistry, expert technique, and exciting music. To kick off International Dance Day, this event is a superb opportunity for audiences in Manila to experience the cutting edge of Asian street dance that is wowing the world today.
