Ralph Escamillan is a dancer, choreographer and community leader – Canadian born, Queer, Filipino/a/x diasporic creator based in Vancouver, BC. The work he creates questions his fascination with identity, traditions, clothing and the influence of pop culture in a globalising society. Ralph’s experience has lent him the opportunity to see the discrepancy of privilege in society, and hope to shift this narrative through their work. He believes the body is powerful and important in communicating these ideas, and that we should support the body’s autonomy/agency, political values, and ancestral legacy. Ralph’s goals are to create more spaces to foster artists like themself, to speak about stories that can connect to people like themself, so that I am not speaking by themselves anymore.
