MNLLikha x Sipat Lawin Ensemble to present RE/PLAY Dance Edit at Circuit Makati
MNLLikha x Sipat Lawin Ensemble, in collaboration with Offsite Dance Project, a group from Japan will be presenting RE/PLAY Dance Edit at the Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Lane, Circuit Makati, on January 13 and 14, 2018.
RE/PLAY is the brainchild of Junnosuke Tada, a renowned Japanese theater maker, and made the production in 2011 for his theater company Tokyo Deathlock. It is a production that will bring together dance artists from the Philippines, Japan, and Cambodia to create a version of Tada’s work tailored for Manila audiences.

It explores the intent and meaning of re-production through bodily repetition of physical movement. Performers dance to the tune of pop music until they collapse from exhaustion, only to get up and repeat the process. This controversial work has an endless structure that subverts the reason and meaning of dance and reveals the urgency of life and chaotic nature of contemporary society.
The first international collaboration was presented in Singapore in 2016 and was co-produced with TheatreWorks, followed by a second collaboration in Cambodia in 2017. For 2018, the Manila collaboration will be co-presented by performance-maker Eisa Jocson with MNLLikha Arts Agency and contemporary performance company the Sipat Lawin Ensemble.

Aside from these performers, they will also be joined by foreign performers like Narim Nam and Sophal Sor from Cambodia, and Kitamari and Sachi Masuda from Japan.
