Maség makes positive waves with Positively Filipino Magazine

February 6, 2015 in Maseg, Maseg Typhoon, Works by Jay Loyola


Positively Filipino Magazine has featured Maség: Typhoon in their latest roundup of stories

Written by Lisa Suguitan Melnick, the review captures the artistic partnership of Master Pilipino Artists – choreographer Jay Loyola, composer Florante Aguilar and creative director, Alleluia Panis.

Melnick explores the deeper themes of Maség and uncovers the core of the production, here’s a sneak peek of the story:

“Maség investigates stories of immigration, subjugation and finally, reconciliation. This theme parallels major elements of Panis’ definition of her career’s work: decolonization through the arts, indigenous spirituality, self-representation, authenticity and striving for excellence.”
