Joining the Kadayawan celebration at SM City Davao is the country’s top ballet ensemble Ballet Philippines on August 10. Ballet Philippines goes Kadayawan will feature excerpts from the company’s well-loved pieces made possible with the genius of proudly Davao talents.
Moriones. Choreographed by no less than Ms Agnes Locsin, Moriones takes inspiration from the Moriones Festival of Marinduque. The material was originally put together for Ballet Philippines 2’s participation at the Recontres Festival Du Danse in La Baule, France. It also became a study for movement for the Guardias Civil dance for Locsin’s coming Encantada. Full performance was first seen in July 1991, Manila, Philippines.
Pusong Wagas. With the original music by independent music icons Cynthia Alexander and Joey Ayala, Pusong Wagas is an original contemporary ballet based on the legend of the city of Mandaluyong. Set in pre-colonial Manila, the story highlights the exemplary love of Luyong, a gifted carpenter, and Manda, a tribal princess, and their sacrifice in the face of the coming foreign invaders.
As an addition to the 2 powerful numbers, Ballet Philippines is also set to perform lllustrated Dialects which is an exquisite lyrical interpretation of the slow-moving romance of Filipino love songs.
