Daring. Different. Defining. Deconstruct. Dance.
Five young choreographers, namely Buboy Raquitico, Christopher Chan, Dingdong Selga, Michael Que, and Sarah Samaniego, will premier ground-breaking works in this year’s KORYOLAB. Showcasing brave, new contemporary dance works, KORYOLAB is designed specifically as a laboratory and research platform for mid-career choreographers to explore and experiment under the mentorship of various artist mentors and the direction of dance pioneers Denisa Reyes and Myra Beltran. This program is part of the CCP CHOREOGRAPHERS SERIES, a three-fold initiative that aims to become the prime mover in the contemporary expression of the Filipino soul.
The Cultural Center of the Philippines was created in 1966 through Executive Order no. 30, with the purpose of promoting and preserving Filipino arts and culture. It was formally inaugurated on September 8, 1969, starting a three month long inaugural festival opened by the epic musical Dularawan. Since then, the CCP has sought to truly embody its logo of katotohanan (truth), kagandahan (beauty) and kabutihan (goodness). The best artists from all over the country and around the world have graced the CCP theaters and galleries, enthralling Filipinos for over thirty years.
