Ballet Philippines' NEO-FILIPINO: ANTING September 14-16, 2012

Anting promises to take audiences to a different world, one that is altogether historical, 
traditional, and familiar yet edgy and unusual in approach. 

Sa kapangyarihan ng Anting, ikaw ba'y pahuhumaling?

Tunghayan ang sayaw ng mahika, hiwaga at galing.

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
Airdance artistic director Ava Villanueva-Ong. 

They will work with the music of noted musicians Jed Balsamo, Jerrold Tarod, Teresa Barrozo and Israel Rodriguez.

Neo-Filipino: Anting has six (6) performances at the CCP Little Theater: Friday, September 14 at 3pm and 8pm; Saturday, September 15 at 2pm and 6pm; and Sunday, September 16 at 10am and 3pm.
