Cebu’s performance artist/poet Russ Ligtas will perform three visually-dynamic performances this Wednesday, October 19, at Handuraw.
“Lullaby of the Lifeless” • A different kind of haunting takes place in this imagining of the afterlife. A dead man is racked with memories from his previous life.
“A Fluke Among Flukes” • This piece was first performed without an audience on an unfinished walkway in Lilo-an, Cebu. It begins as a rumination on the plight of the non-human persons in Taiji, Japan and ends as a prayer for the cetaceanvictims. The piece will be performed later this month at the site of the dolphin slaughter.
“Laylay ni Mortisio” (“Mortisio’s Lullaby”) • An homage to Tatsumi Hijikata, this dance tells of the apprehensions that visit the mind before achieving sleephood: Mortality,the elusiveness of sleep and the fear of nightmares.
