LEGATO is a collection of modern circus practitioners from Manila, Philippines brought together by their strong passion towards juggling and object manipulation. Legato focuses on bringing out aesthetically pleasing performances and visuals of object manipulation with the aim to evolve the art form even further.
A BRIEF HISTORY
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 travelled around the world indulging himself into the craft and along the way, has shared his strong passion towards the 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 the art form further 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 illusionary object manipulation.
Our vision and motives are to present and share next level and aesthetically pleasing performances to a fresh audience and inspire new generations to explore object manipulation not just as a skill but as movement and creative expression.
