Maség Typhoon

Saturday May 23rd, 2015
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
San Francisco Bay Area
Performance | FREE

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. This is the riveting story of the once powerful and righteous tribal shaman, Panglima, who is exiled to the island of Puló, where he manipulates and enslaves the island deities into conjuring a powerful storm to sink his enemies’ ship. Maség is gorgeous dance theater created by three of the Bay Area’s most respected artists: Philippine dance choreographer Jay Loyola, composer Florante Aguilar and Kularts’ Artistic Director Alleluia Panis.
