Eisa Jocson exposes body politics in the service and entertainment industry as seen through the unique socioeconomic lens of the Philippines. She studies how the body moves and what conditions make it move — be it social mobility or movement out of the Philippines through migrant work. In all her creations, capital is the driving force of movement pushing the indentured body into spatial geographies.
Eisa Jocson is a contemporary choreographer and dancer from the Philippines, trained as a visual artist, with a background in ballet. She has been commissioned by and toured extensively in major contemporary festival and biennials.
