Design Statement

In the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the People Power Revolution (#EDSA30), Ballet Manila's founder and artistic director, prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, collaborated with British choreographer Martin Lawrence, on a new ballet loosely adapted from the events that led to the fall of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.

Key to the mise-en-scene of REBEL was the Brutalist Architecture of the Philippine Martial Law era. A foreboding fortress that not only kept rebellions out, but enclosed the high society of the Marcos cronies engulfs the performance space. The seat of power atop the superficial stronghold is challenged as political turmoil starts to crumble its core. Change is inevitable.

It is important to revisit the aesthetics of ruins, as the signifier of the past, stripped away and liberated. Both the sky & space survives, withstanding the test of time.

With music from Aram Katchaturian's SPARTACUS, Ballet Manila's REBEL challenges the new generation to learn from the past and rebuild with hopes of not making same mistakes
