Agnes Locsin Has Done it Again with La Revolucion Filipina

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The re-staging of Agnes Locsin’s modern dance masterpiece “La Revolucion Filipina” allowed us to witness once more the stories behind the personalities of Philippine history like Emilio Aguinaldo, Andres Bonifacio and Apolinario Mabini

Though I cannot confirm the authenticity and accurateness of the facts laid down to us via the unique storytelling through ballet dance, we were amazed by the gracefulness of the presentation done using mostly the power of body language. There may be occasional integration of spoken words all throughout the play, but the majority of the intended emotions were felt strongly from many of the dance moves.

You could see how passionate the dancers were as if they are truly involved with the stories of yesteryears. The Neo-ethnic style of dancing that only Agnes Locsin is able to impart to the dancers makes you envious of the mastery she is able to share to her dancers.

Though the play really pays homage to the crippled hero and political philosopher we all know with the name of Apolinario Mabini, the other characters of the play also played significant parts to make the play contain more substance. Agnes Locsin “taught” the paraplegic revolutionary icon to dance and soar high like following your dreams.

Mabini is known as the “sublime paralytic” and Agnes Locsin was able to teach the dancer playing role of “the architect” of the Philippine Revolution to perform convincingly.

I am totally impressed of what our Filipino talents can do. If given more funding and opportunities to perform, these plays should be toured not only in the Philippines but around the world. This is history shared in the most fascinating way. We understood more from all the dancing compared to the spoken dialogues.

Locsin is joined again by Ryan Cayabyab as music composer, Dennis Marasigan as librettist, Mio Infante as set designer, Katsch Catoy as lighting designer, and Victor Ursabia as costume designer.

Congratulations to La Revolucion Filipina. More power to Ballet Philippines for such a wonderful production. We are truly proud of you.
