After two years of dancing online, Ballet Philippines brings back the excitement and the glory of live stage performances with Equus, Bolero, and Other Dances.
Equus, derived from the Latin word that directly translates to “horse”, represents the hard work put in by a dancer. A dancer’s work is likened to the work, strength, force, and grace of a horse. But beyond the metaphor, Equus is a reflection of ballet artistry at its finest.
Bolero, danced to the music of Maurice Ravel, is a powerful performance seeped in Spanish influences. The almost hypnotic, fluid movement of this performance is reminiscent of a toreador, accompanied by the very same music that has remained distinct and contemporary 93 years later.
