About the Show
In cooperation with the choreographer Eisa Jocson and Mousonturm Frankfurt, Ballet Philippines presented the World Premiere of “Your Highness” at the CCP Little Theater last July 27-28, 2017. Created with 5 young and dexterous dancers of Ballet Philippines, 'Your Highness' is a concert that prefigures their potential transition into the industry of happiness. It endlessly rehearses their becoming 'real' within the fantasy hall of 'performed happiness': of manufactured desires built upon privilege and the idealized Other. This work was likewise performed at several major European performing arts festivals last August to September 2017.
