Myra Betran's Contemporary Dance Deconstruction of Virgie Moreno’s Itim Asu

Myra Beltran’s Dance Forum continues on its groundbreaking innovative path once again!

It dares to stage the historic play “ITIM ASU” (an original memorable drama by Virgie Moreno), now deconstructed with a contemporary feel. This drama is a play within a play, and contains within it the story of La Loba Negra, the wife of then governor general during the Spanish colonial era in the Philippines , Gov. General Bustamante, who was assassinated due to his many reforms, supposedly by a conspiracy of friars. La Loba Negra’s story is based on a document attributed to Fr. Jose Burgos, one of three martyred priests during the Spanish colonial era in the Philippines . La Loba Negra was supposed to have joined a group of peasant revolutionaries and her revenge was exacted in the confessionals around the lakeshore towns of Laguna.

Re-titled ‘ITIM-ASU: 1719-2009” the company boasts of an interesting collaboration between multi-media designers’ Sherad Sanchez for video, Teresa Barrozo for music design plus the exhilarating contemporary dance mix of Dance Forum and the UP. Dance Company with guest soloists from Airdance. This reconstruction, is a construction of rebirthing history- a returning to the past that brings back its presents- in dance, images, and song.

Interested sponsors may avail of the P500 seater tickets. Your valuable contribution means that you like the way we think. Your drop in our bucket will mean too that this was worth the making!
