to life, natural and transparent. This ongoing dance project currently
consists of researched materials transformed into numerous solos, duets
and trios. Tolentino’s goal is to select the choreography with the
greatest potential from an abundance of existing and newly created
materials and create a new 60 minute dance piece set for three dancers
supported with a multi-media component.

spiritual manifestation that brings faith and hope to us, magnifying
the beauty of life and death” states Tolentino.

designer James Proudfoot and composer Ted Hamilton are on board for
this creative journey exploring the combination of traditional with
contemporary musical idioms.
