ABOUT DALOY

“Breathtaking, provocative and daring,” – Wanggo Gallaga, Manila Bulletin

Since its establishment in 2014, Daloy has made waves in the Manila art scene with polymorphic productions that play with the boundaries of contemporary dance (Pieces of Me, The Sky Changed, Inter/Act); while other critically acclaimed works (Dysmorphilia, Canton, and Himalaya) invited audiences to both question and celebrate societal culture. With its strong collaborative thrust, the company has worked with notable visual artists in various museums and galleries in the Philippines. Daloy has likewise performed in a range of dance and art festivals locally and abroad, including WIFI Body Contemporary Dance Festival; The Blue Moon Series Gala; Imaginarium: A Multi-arts Festival of the Absurd; FRINGE Manila Festival; Fete de la Musique; Malasimbo Lights and Dance Festival; Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Pasinaya Festival; Performatura Arts Festival; Low Fat Art Fest (Thong Lor Art Space, Bangkok, Thailand, 2015); and Setouchi Triennale (Takamatsu and Seto, Japan, July 2016).
