Artistic Director

EA TORRADO

IMG_3888-2Cited as one of the most exciting and sought-after contemporary dancer-choreographers in the Philippines today, Ea creates visceral and evocative works that have been presented in numerous sites and stages in Manila and abroad. Rigorously trained in classical ballet from a young age, Ea has essayed principal and soloist roles in traditional and contemporary full-length dances and toured extensively in the Philippines and USA, Russia, Scotland, Japan and Cambodia with Ballet Manila, Ballet Philippines, and Dance Theatre of Tennessee.

She was awarded the prestigious Alvin Erasga Tolentino Koreograpiya Award (2014), Remedios De Oteyza Award for Choreography (2016) and Asian Cultural Council Grant (2016). She is also a member of World Dance Alliance- Philippines and (ICONS) International Consortium for Advancement in Choreography. In 2015, she was one of the formidable judges for the Association of Ballet Academies of the Philippines Competition.

She is the founder and artistic director of Manila-based dance theatre group, Daloy Dance Company, where she refines her choreographic style by fusing powerful elements of dance, theatre and improvisation. With Daloy, she has presented Walang Hiya Festival, Sayaw Galaw, Ugnayan Community Porgram and Tanghal at Talakay, all projects that tapped diverse Filipino communities by utilizing dance as a tool for personal and social change.

As a teacher, among the notable dance schools where she worked as faculty member are The School of Ballet Manila, Cultural Center of the Philippines Dance School, Asian American Academy of Performing Arts, METTA Theatre of the Assumption, Tanghalang Pilipino Summer Outreach Program, University of the Philippines Dance Company, International School Manila, De La Salle University and Company of Ateneo Dancers. Internationally, she conducted workshops in Sweden, Malaysia and USA (Nashville, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Connecticut).
