Cong. Lord Allan Velasco's Cultural Night for PICE a smash


When I posted throwback pics from 2008 of Bulong dance-drama presented in the six towns of Marinduque as part of the NCCA-PGM National Arts Month-Araw ng Marinduque project, I had no inkling that it would be restaged one and a half months later. But it happened.



Matagumpay na naisagawa ng Teatro Balangaw sa pamamahala ng inyong lingkod ang pagtatanghal ng "Bulong" kasama ang Pangkat Kalutang, Moriones at Putong sa pangunguna ng Tanggapan ni Cong. Lord Allan Q. Velasco at pakikipagtulungan ng Tanggapan ni Mayor Bert Madla at kanyang Engineering Office. Ito ay may kinalaman sa Marinduque hosting ng PICE Technical Conference ng mga delegates from Calabarzon at Mimaropa at iba pang rehiyon mula March 22-24.

What is BULONG?

This Dance-Drama was inspired by a compilation of Marinduque’s folklores published in 1914 and annotated by anthopologist Henry Otley Beyer, known as the Father of Philippine Anthropology. “Bulong”, pronounced boo’-long, is defined as the collective name of spirits that bodily transport humans into another place or dimension. It is thus a glimpse into local traditional stories and bits and pieces of Marinduque’s ancient history.








SYNOPSIS:

Teenage Salve catching ‘bilabila’ (butterflies), gets lost in the forest. She finds herself in the company of elemental spirits and creatures of the underworld like patianacs, asuangs, duwendes, lambanas, engkanto, white lady. She is taken to the world of her ancestors under the rule of Katalona and witnesses their rituals and practices and how these were supplanted by a new set of beliefs. The spirits free her at last but Engkanto, calling in Aswangs get in the way. With no one to save Salve except herself, she uses the folk formula to set herself free from her vicious abductors.
