Over thirty five thousand spectators trooped to watch the 15 shows of the well-acclaimed MSU-IIT Integrated Performing Arts Guild’s Tales From Mindanao and its sequel Tatlo sa Isa in IPAG’s first two legs of its roads shows for its 32nd Season.
The road shows that each IPAG season includes opened its first leg last August 9 to 16 in the provinces of Laguna, Batangas, and Manila and its second leg August 28 – September 2 in Manila schools.
These dance-music productions of Mindanao tri-people stories performed at the University of the East, University of Asia and the Pacific, Miriam College, Laguna Polytechnic State University, and the Batangas State University. Full house audiences filled up each of the 5 shows at the 5,000-seat Batangas Coliseum in Batangas City.
Tales is perhaps Philippine Theatre’s most-traveled, most-watched, and most–performed dance theater production today. It is also IPAG’s signature international touring production that has been performed in over 100 festivals worldwide. Mobile and easily mountable, this production presents its narratives in the dance and music mediums of Mindanao cultures. Its highly entertaining quality has made this a favorite enjoyed by all audiences of all ages.
The IPAG 32nd Season is supported by Pioneer Insurance and Surety Corporation, the NCCA, and the MSU-IIT.
Tales continues its road tours for the 32nd season with more performances in various Luzon and Mindanao cities and schools from September 2009 to March 2010. Keep posted for schedules.
