R-18: Bold Contemporary Dance

The Airdance Company presented a bill of intimate contemporary dances dubbed "R-18", two evenings of bold contemporary dance last September 18 and 25, 2004, 7:30 pm, at the Airdance Studio at the 2nd Flr., The Outlet Yard, 1480 Quezon Ave., Quezon City

The event showcased new choreographies from the company's resident choreographers including Dwight Rodrigazo, Avel Bautista, Christine Maranan, Lynley Tan, Paul Morales and Bunny Brendia. Despite the venue's limited space, the company will strived to push the boundaries of our perception of what is modern dance, resulting in a provoking and entertaining evening. A highlight of the show was "Breathing Space", choreographed for Airdance by noted Filipino dancer Ernest Mandap, a long time dancer with the Brumachon Lamarche company based in Nantes, France.

The show was warmly applauded and received by guests that included former Ballet Philippines Artistic Director Denisa Reyes, danseuse Edna Vida, Prof. Steve Villaruz of the UP Dance Company, dance critic Marge Enriquez, Goethe Institut Director Volkir Avenmarg, the French Chamber of Commerce's VP Bruno Vergnes and Alvin Ailey School Dance teacher Max Luna amongst others.

Airdance was recently awarded the "Best Young Contemporary Dance Theater Company in the Philippines" when it won the 3rd Mindanao Modern Dance Competition in Koronadal City, South Cotabato last July 2004.

This show was restaged as part of the CONTEMPORAY DANCE MAP - INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY 2005 Celebration in April 23 and 24, 2005.

Ars Poetica

October 22 & 23, 2005, 8pm
Dance Forum Space, 38 West Ave., Quezon City

 

Contemporary dance choreographers pay tribute to women poets in celebration of the Centennial of the Feminist Movement in the Philippines in "Ars Poetica," an evening of dance and poetry, on Oct. 22 and 23, 2005, 8pm at Dance Forum Space, 38 West Avenue.

The program is presented by Myra Beltran’s Dance Forum, the National Commission on Culture and Arts, Subcommittee on Culture and the Arts, NGO-GO National Network for the Feminist Centennial in cooperation with Air Dance.

This contemporary dance concert features "high priestess of poetry" Virginia Moreno’s poem "Order for Masks" in collaborative choreography by Myra Beltran, Paul Morales and Bunny Brendia. Ms. Moreno was the only female writer amongst a pioneering and intellectual group of artists, who called themselves the "Ravens". In their work and critique of art practices prevailing in the 1950’s, these artists influenced a generation of other artists. One writer has described Ms. Moreno as "the last bohemian." Each poem of hers is called a "jewel". "Order for Masks" is set in the pre-war Carnival era and its heart is the Woman ordering three masks for the three tasks in her life. Performed by Myra Beltran, Proceso Gelladuga II, Reagan Cornelio and Paul Morales.

The evening also premieres the choreography of Christine Maranan-Novales, Avel Bautista, Donna Miranda, Nina Hayuma Habulan and Elena Laniog - poetry rendered in contemporary dance. Also performing are Vinia Pamplona, Jethro Pioquinto and Vincent Egido. Visual Design by Gio Respall and costume design by Jethro Pioquinto.
