Philippine Neo-Ethnic Choreography
Agnes Locsin, pioneering Filipino choreographer, details the ten steps to neo-ethnic choreography, from concept to execution, to help readers understand the creative process involved in modern dance. Neo-ethnic choreography is a marriage of tribal dance and classical ballet; Locsin’s personal account demonstrates how this form of dance began in the Philippines and continues to influence choreographers today. She also shares her notes and experiences on choreography for competition and how to stage dance choreographies in big venues such as the CCP. Pictures of dance movements are included in the book as well as a sketch by national artist BenCab.
