The University of the East, through the UE Office of Cultural Affairs, will present a dance program titled Andres KKK on Friday, February 28, 2020, 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., at the UE Theater in the University’s main campus in Manila.
Andres KKK is a dance depiction of the Katipunan movement, in which the life of KKK founder Andres Bonifacio is highlighted with a flashback to 1892. This ballet dance was originally conceived in time for the Philippine centennial in 1998.
UE OCA Director and UE Silanganan Dance Troupe Director Generoso “Gener” Caringal, who was Artistic Director of the Philippine Ballet Theater at the time of the country’s centennial celebration, was tasked with putting up a ballet that would use a Philippine hero to best describe the centennial commemoration.
“After 20 years of performing it at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and some international theaters, I am showcasing it again, this time through the UE Silanganan Dance Troupe at the UE Theater,” Director Caringal says.
This performance of Andres KKK is part of UE’s observance of February as National Arts Month, whose theme this year is Ani ng Sining: The Philippine Arts Festival. Admission is free for bearers of the show tickets, which will be issued one hour before each performance on a first come, first served basis at the third-floor lobby of the UE Theater.
For reservations or inquiries, please contact the UE OCA via tel no. 8-735-5471 local 441 or 8-735-8556.
