Ballet Philippines presents 'Neo-Filipino: Anting'
On September 14 to 16, 2012, Ballet Philippines performs its second season offering, Neo-Filipino: Anting.
Anting brings to life pre-eminent dramatist Tony Perez’s libretto that explores the world of talismans and amulets of Filipino magical traditions. It is made up for four separate movements, each depicting a specific kind of amulet and its powers.
Each movement is interpreted through dance by noted Filipino choreographers: BP artistic director Paul Alexander Morales, BP associate artistic director Christine Crame, BP alumnus and E-Dance Theatre artistic director Gerald Mercado, and Airdance artistic director Ava Villanueva-Ong. They will work with the music of noted musicians Jed Balsamo, Jerrold Tarog, Teresa Barrozo and Israel Rodriguez.
Anting promises to take audiences to a different world, one that is altogether historical, traditional, and familiar yet edgy and unusual in approach. As the 43rd Season: Dragon Song continues, Ballet Philippines keeps the magic and wonder alive in us all.
Neo-Filipino: Anting has six performances at the CCP Little Theater: Friday, September 14 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.; Saturday, September 15 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.; and Sunday, September 16 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.. Tickets are at P600 (matinees) and P1200 (evening shows). Student and senior citizen discounts apply. For tickets, call Ballet Philippines at 551-1003 or Ticketworld at 891-9999.
