 Incarcerated 6x9 - HEADER

A B O U T

Brief Description:
Alleluia’s latest work, Incarcerated 6×9, is a bold, physically and emotionally layered, 60-minute immersive dance-media performance at Bindlestiff Studio May 19 – 21, 2017 performed by 8 dancers to an original music score by Rachel Lastimosa of the indie-soul, R&B duo Dirty Boots and video by filmmaker Wilfred Galila.

6×9 explores the hopes, delusions and the ultimate will to survive in the loneliest, most bitter place on the planet. Inspired by the real-life incarceration accounts of young Pinoy Americans between 1966-2008, it is a work of creative non-fiction located in the near future 2048, highlighting the state of humanity among Pilipinos in the United States, 150 years after the US annexation of the Philippines.

BA-E MAKILING - HEADER

A B O U T

Brief Description:
A collaboration with Bay Area Pilipino master artists, Philippine dance choreographer Jay Loyola, composer Florante Aguilar of the award winning documentary Harana, and Kularts Artistic Director Alleluia Panis, presented by Kularts, Ba-e Makiling re-imagines an indigenous mythological love story told through the dynamic emerging genre of Philippine dance theater performance.

Set before the coming of Europeans, in an imagined remote village at the foot of Mount Makiling, the deity Ba-e Makiling, guardian of the dormant volcano unexpectedly falls in love with an injured villager, hunter Lakai. Inspired by Philippine myths and native spirituality, their relationship serves as an empowering message to re-discover and reclaim the indigenous self denied by centuries of colonization.

Maseg- HEADER

A B O U T

Brief Description:
Three of Bay Area’s most respected Filipino American master artists: Philippine dance choreographer Jay Loyola, composer Florante Aguilar of the award-winning film Harana and Kularts’ Artistic Director Alleluia Panis, collaborate to create Maség (Typhoon) in the new genre of Philippine dance theater performance. Set in the Philippines circa 1400’s, Maség uses Shakespeare’s classic The Tempest as framework to investigate issues of immigration, indigenous spirituality, and subjugation of the weak in the riveting story of the once powerful and righteous tribal shaman leader, Panglima, who is politically exiled to the imagined typhoon-battered island of Puló, where he manipulates and enslaves the island deities into conjuring a powerful storm to sink his enemies’ ship.
