About the show

In “LAKBAY” (Tagalog word for Journey), Josh meditates on patterns, cycles and rhythms. Drawing upon his mother tongue of Tagalog, pivotal personal experiences and journeys into the natural world of the west coast rainforest, he intimately attunes into buried roots; breathing life into the undercurrents of their queer and filipinx identity.

New Works is proud to partner with Rumble on the world premiere presentation of LAKBAY by Josh Ongcol & Miguel Maravilla. This piece was created earlier in March 2021 as part of Josh’s artist residency with Rumble and New Works. The development of LAKBAY is made possible through Made in BC/Dance West Network’s 2nd annual Creative Residency, Re-Centering Margins 2020-21 and was further developed through Josh’s artist residency with Rumble and New Works in March 2021.
