We dance, we declare! Airdance goes out of it comfort zones with its newest adventures in movement and dance. Steering clear from plotless, abstract, free-your-mind-it-is-whatever-you-want-it-to-be pieces, the company confidently presents its stance and position against social injustice with DECLARATION.

Airdance choreographers and dancers will be performing dance compositions inspired by articles from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. People from all over the world are suffering from oppression, hunger, and discrimination. There can’t be a more fitting time to stand up and move against all these. This production is a conscious effort to contradict the notion that artists, dancers especially, have no awareness and concern for the greater good, hence the discrimination against the arts for not having any social relevance. This is a campaign against that discrimination in dance in our society.

We do not promise to bring about world peace, nor can we end starvation but allow us to assert our right to freedom of opinion and expression (be it verbal or otherwise) in the best way we know how, through dance.

 

DECLARATION will feature Contemporary Dance pieces choreographed by Airdance Artistic Director Ava Maureen Villanueva, Associate Artistic Directors Rhosam Prudenciado Jr. and Jed Amihan, and choreographers Mia Cabalfin, Avel Bautista, Alfred Mercado, Jojo Guzman and Johnny Amar.

For inquiries and reservations, please call 415-2185, or call/text 0916-356-6693.

DECLARATION is co-presented by Airdance and Dance Forum, members of the Contemporary Dance Network Philippines (www.contempodancenetphil.org)
