Bohol Dance Project Company will mount the dance concert, “A Blue Evening,” on Feb. 23, 7 p.m., at the Maybank Theater/ Globe Auditorium, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
The concert is part of the Manila Fringe Festival 2018.
The Bohol dance group is a contemporary dance ensemble developed through the collaboration between French choreographers and Bohol dance groups.
Show is free of charge.
The Bohol Dance Project Company is an initiative brought about by a series of dance workshops every summer since 2015 when French choreographers and dance teachers Guillaume Morgan and Nicola Ayoub conducted two-week-long trainings for local dancers and choreographers through the auspices of the French and American governments and the provincial government of Bohol.
“A Blue Evening” consists of three numbers: “Blue Way”, choreographed by guest Romanian choreographer Gigi Caciuleanu; “Mula sa Kaibuturan,” danced and created by Rama Marcaida; and “Apat,” choreography by Rama Marcaida.
Dancers are Jay Banquil, Jerrey David Aguilar, Marvin Ablao, and Yassie Nalo.
Supporters of the concert are Guillaume Morgan, Kasing Sining of the Teatro Bol-anon Ensemble, Holy Name University, Mater Dei College, Buon Pastore, Provincial Government of Bohol, and National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
The dance group will also perform the musical drama, “Dagohoy,” during the Tampok Visayas theater festival Feb. 24, as part of the NCCA’s National Arts Month celebration.
