How it started…
Legato Visual Performing Arts was founded by Alvin Lopez, an object manipulator from Manila and is also one of the pioneer practitioners of Contact Juggling in Manila. He has traveled around the world indulging himself into the craft and along the way, has shared his strong passion towards this art form. Together with the poi enthusiast Victor Belo and contemporary dancer Nemrel Aquino, they formed the group with the intent of pushing the limit of modern circus performance art in the Philippines.
Since its establishment last November 2015, Legato has performed unique pieces and choreography for a wide variety of both local and international stages. The group offers a wide range of modern circus acts such as contemporary juggling acts, programmed LED light dances and mind bending object manipulation.
It is Legato’s ultimate goal is to present and share next level performances – illusion, art, quality and aesthetic to a fresh audience and inspire new generations to explore object manipulation not just as a skill but as movement and creative expression.
