VANCOUVER — Filipino migrant workers unveiled a collaborative art piece in a new exhibit, celebrating this year’s International Migrant’s Day.
Alvin Erasga Tolentino, a Filipino-Canadian dancer-choreographer, initiated The MigARTion Project with Migrante BC and the Latino support organization, Migrant Workers’ Dignity Association.
Tolentino says he wants migrant workers to experience art as a form of release for their emotions.
The project was a collaborative piece that was the culmination of these artists’ studies in voice, theatre and dance.
It told of their experience as workers in a foreign land.
