This 9-12 October, James Cousins, one of the UK’s foremost choreographers, brings to the Philippine stage two masterpieces of contemporary dance—Without Stars and There We Have Been. 

Taking inspiration from the troubled relationships portrayed in Haruki Murakami’s novel Norwegian Wood, There We Have Been ushers the audience into a secluded world of fragile intimacy and love lost, a drama which finds fruition in Without Stars. Abstract yet lucid, emotional and clever, Cousins’ pieces chime with a complexity that provokes admiration rather than confusion. 

The inaugural winner of Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Choreography Award, Cousins was chosen for his “refreshing desire to entertain”—the same reason for which those who have seen his work are hungry to return.

Catch his performances, as well as workshops, at the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) from 9-10 October and at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) on 11-12 October.

Updates will be posted on our Twitter page and on our Facebook page.
