Alvin Collantes is a queer Filipino-Canadian dance artist, drag performer, certified Gaga teacher, and Jungian life coach based in Berlin. His artistic work and pedagogical practice explores transcendental experiences of liberating the body through expressions, visceral states of sensations, poetic displays of sensitivity, and touching emotional landscapes of the unknown. His work Dose of Pleasure has been featured in a slew of magazines including DW News, and Kaltblut, and he is currently featured in Adam Munnings’ film OASIS. Alvin is also part of Fluids, an intimate duet in collaboration with Jun Suzuki, exploring emotional upheavals through a close interaction of body movements and sound improvisation. Inspired by their parallel childhood upbringings in Japan and the Philippines, Jun and Alvin share the stories that were left behind.
