Million dollar listings realtor Rich Lewetzow contacted me regarding a beautiful Nob Hill condo. I couldn't have anticipated the views from the unit as well as the slick style of the condo itself. It basically sells itself.
Kularts Presents the World Premiere: Palau’an Bird Call – Huni Ng Tandikan
Master Choreographer: Jay Loyola Music Score: Nick Obando Graphic Designer: Tina Besa Motion Graphics: Gregory Manalo
Commissioned by Kularts, Master Choreographer Jay Loyola creates a powerful new dance work inspired by Francisco Baltazar’s Ibong Adarna, a beloved Philippine epic of a dying ruler cured by the song of the mythical adarna bird. Loyola, an adopted son of the Tagbanua Tribe, creates a fierce contemporary dance story, blending the epic’s core elements of courage and healing, Palawan Island’s own beautiful but illusive tandikan peacock, with aesthetics viscerally anchored in Palawan’s vigorous dance, haunting chants, driving percussion music, and the indigenous belief in nature’s divine mysteries.
A principal dancer and associate choreographer for the prestigious Bayanihan National Folk Dance Company of the Philippines—Loyola has extensively researched, documented and participated in the rituals and dances of the tribal people of Palawan and the Philippines. His vision is to create a theatrical presentation of Palawan rituals and dances for the stage, so that audiences experience not only the original dances, but also understand the story and the context in which the rituals, dances, and music traditionally take place. This new staged production is performed by members of Bay Area dancers from Parangal Dance Company, LIKHA, and Alleluia Panis Dance Theater.
