ENGAGE... With the imagination ...With the impossible ...With that which is slipping away.
The last WiFi Body Independent Contemporary Festival shows the best of Philippine contemporary dance from July 18 to 20, 2014, at the Tanghalang Huseng Batute, Cultural Center of the Philippines, Pasay City.
The 7th and final WiFi Body Festival will be held this year at Tanghalang Huseng Batute at the Cultural Center of the Philippines from July 18 to 20, 2014. The festival began as an attempt to corral the energies and ideas of a burgeoning contemporary dance scene that flourished in alternative and even unexpected spaces, bringing all these together back to the Cultural Center of the Philippines, taking independent contemporary dance out of its niche to present it to a bigger audience of art. After 6 festivals of dance that disturbed the mainstream, and questioned the status quo, Philippine contemporary dance is no longer the odd man out, now having its own familiar identity. And so it is timely that this year's WiFi Body Festival, the final WiFi Body Festival, takes a look back at all it has done, and what it has become.
