QUEZON CITY, Philippines – After premiering in Berlin and touring performances in Germany and Malaysia, ECHO: It’s Just A Temporary Thing will now make its debut on the Philippine stage this October. Proudly presented by the PETA Theater Center and Goethe-Institut Philippinen, ECHO: It’s Just A Temporary Thing is a critically-acclaimed multimedia dance piece that exposes the deep intercultural connection and successful fusion of different dance traditions.
The performance is conceptualized and choreographed by Riki Von Falken, a renowned choreographer from Berlin, Germany together with Naim Syarahzad, a student and a member of the ASWARA dance company from Malaysia. Riki taught contemporary dance and choreography at Aswara in which she encountered traditional dances such as Malay, Indian, Chinese and Silat tradition and eventually discovered the similarities of her own abstract form of dancing with these Asian dance traditions. Riki and Naim began working together in Kuala Lumpur and eventually deepened and strengthened their exchange when they met again in Berlin years later. The combination of their individual styles and the fusion of their dance traditions gave birth to ECHO: It’s Just A Temporary Thing.
ECHO: It’s Just A Temporary Thing will be shown on October 2 and 3, 8pm at PETA Theater Center. Tickets are Php 450 for regular audiences and Php 250 for students.
