Canton

Choreographer: Ea Torrado
Music and sound design: Christopher Aronson
Set design: Io Balanon

Canton is a dance piece that zooms in on the life of a survival sex worker as she waits to service her client. Fusing speech and contemporary dance, the piece explores the unimaginable experience of the poverty-stricken women in squatter relocation sites who have sex with truck drivers for a packet of pancit canton.
