Ballet Philippines (BP) announces the opening of its BP OnStream 52nd Season through a virtual media launch via Zoom.
As the company closes its 51st Season, they offer their sincere appreciation for their audiences' support during last season's launch of BP OnStream ( https://ballet.ph/ ). It is with a grateful heart that together they have witnessed their dream of keeping ballet alive.
The website, BP OnStream ( https://ballet.ph/ ) has since turned into a full testament of the Filipino's resilience as an artist. Ballet Philippines has survived and now more than ever, #BalletIsAlive! This digital platform is among the few of its kind in the world, making the company proud, having provided 52 masterclasses from legendary superstars of the ballet world with 1,617 Masterclass attendees. The website was designed and conceived to bring ballet and the arts to their audience's homes.
BP President Kathleen Liechtenstein shares her most memorable moments during the past eventful year, "Having adapted and integrated BP well to survive the lockdowns, closed stage, banned live shows makes me very proud of the dancers and executive staff who have demonstrated such awesome talents and fortitude!"
Liechtenstein officially turned over the 51st Season by announcing the World Premiere of the last two productions of the season: Dystopian Body and Diyosa.
Ballet Philippines explored the dystopian dance form to stage Dystopian Body, a performance that is concerned with a place where the body evolved despite an environment where conditions do not provide the most basic needs of its citizens. And in Diyosa, the thought-provoking performance takes us back to the times when Filipino gods, goddesses and humans lived together in harmony.
With these last two productions marking the end of the 51st Season, Mercedes Zobel of BP's Board of Trustees announced the official opening of the 52nd Season.
