Kularts presents Typhoon Maség

Produced by Kularts with Philippine Master Dance Artist Jay Loyola,
Creative Director Alleluia Panis and Composer Florante Aguilar.

Saturday November 15 8pm
Sunday November 16 3pm

Using Shakespeare’s classic The Tempest as framework, Typhoon Maség tells a magical tale of a once powerful and righteous tribal shaman chieftain, Pang-lima (Prospero), through original Philippine dance choreography and music. Set in pre-colonial times, on an imagined typhoon-battered island of Puló in Palawan, Philippines, Pang-lima  Manipulates and enslaves the deities of Puló Island, Kapre (Caliban) of the Forest and  Deres (Ariel) of the Water and Wind, into conjuring a powerful typhoon to sink his enemies’ balangay ship. Shipwrecked, his enemies are separated and lost in Puló Island. Struck by his own unspeakable acts of injustice and manipulations, Pang-lima suffers gut-wrenching internal conflict threatening to destroy his very soul. Will he abandon his vengeful streak and end the hateful feud between their families or continue on the path of self-destruction?
