Abstract

Unearthing by Ea Torrado and Daloy Dance Company explores the profound entanglements of the carnal and the spiritual. An experiment in transcendence from the physical to more vulnerable states of inner being (loób), the three-person piece uses movement as a form of attunement to a deeper inward contact.
Inspired by Somatics, trance improvisation, and contemporary practices of Babaylan philosophy, Daloy dance artists Buboy Raquitico, Zyda Baaya, and Jomari Cruz transcend conventional dance-making and performance through chanting and intuitive movement. Chant artist and singer Anjeline de Dios, percussionist and Kulintang-player Tusa Montes and award-winning lights designer Katsch Catoy envelop the piece in a powerful and uninhibited setting.
In expanding the inner space of loób, the three bodies reanimate the consciousness-shifting modality of the Babaylan—the pre-colonial shamanic priestesses of the Philippine islands. Unearthing transforms performance into community ritual, foregrounding the social being as a sacred being.
Unearthing premiered at the 2015 Karnabal Festival: Social and Performance Innovations. Wanggo Gallaga of the Manila Bulletin writes that the piece showcases Daloy's distinct orientation “away from the conventional idea of what contemporary dancing is expected to be. Unafraid to explore awkward shapes or deal with simplistic narratives, the Daloy Dance Company presses forward in their offering of a very different kind of contemporary dance show for the Filipino audience.”
