"Albert GARCIA (b. 1994) was born and raised in Macao with Filipino descent, a migrant, dancer and performance maker, who uses the body as a medium for questioning, showing their identity reflections when viewing the land from the other side. He has collaborated with multiple artists in Asia and Europe ranging from performance to visual arts and works closely with Stella & Artist (Macao) where he started his dance journey.
In 2020, due to the impact of the epidemic, ""JOY"" was developed by a theatre premiere via the clouds, inviting his mother in Macao, together with Albert in Taiwan to perform on a live stage in Macao. This research has allowed him to participate in Singapore Dance Nuclues’s [CP3 Performance Review] and the 2021 Tokyo Festival Farm."
