The Elements — from the Philippines

Posted by dogtrax on March 20, 2007

The Elements is the story of Basilan (a remote part of the Philippines) presented in a unique way. Combining dance, music, myth, actual events, dazzling costumes, and modern technology all rolled into one. Who would ever expect that a group of students from the remotest and perceived to be the most troubled spot in the Philippines could come up with such a world class play? Basilan was a battlefield for more than 30 years between Christians and Muslims and this a musical play features both Christians and Muslims in the cast. Not only that, the students speak in several native dialects such as Chavacano, Visayan, Yakan and Tausog and yet they were able to unite and come up with a superb performance. The performance is by a sister school of the Claret School of Quezon City and the Claret students have been working on a website to showcase The Elements production.
