Top dancers from across Asia to perform exciting collaborative street dance show 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!
