Under the artistic directorship of Filipino/Canadian choreographer and dancer, Alvin Erasga Tolentino, the company explores issues of cultural identity, redress, hybridity and by juxtaposing the public and private territory to promote inter and cross-cultural visionary works.

Co. ERASGA is faithful to the kinetic power of dance as the core, source and tool for dynamic communication.

We value community, the artists and their sense of identity and political voice that gives them a platform for integration, experience and artistic expression. Co.ERASGA is culturally diverse because it responds to the changes and growing diverse community and cultural values to explore issues of race, colonialism, ethnic identity, equality, racism and spirituality in the arts beyond and outside the western ideology.
