Land is the belly of man. The field is the screen on which the history of man and civilization is projected; it is the tangible surface between past and future. It contains the heritage of the roots and supports the promises of the harvest. In a cross-cultural journey, Tolentino’s Field is a new interdisciplinary dance work that realized through an evocative exploration, meeting and transformation of ethnicity and modernity. Field is man, work, roots, grain and the life reflecting the force of one’s identity over time.
