Anito: Justin Shoulder [Mona Foma]

In Philippine folk tales, the balete tree (Ficus indica) is considered the dwelling place for supernatural beings. In this live work, the balete becomes a portal to the Skyworld – ‘a Queer Filipinx Future Folkloric space of storytelling’—where installation, visual arts, theatre and dance combine. Elaborately costumed performers transform into ‘creatures’: hybrids between animal, plant, human and machine, animated by their own gestural languages and a live soundscape. Tactile tour A tactile tour will take place before the Saturday matinee performance, allowing people who may experience the world differently (such as those who have a sensory sensitivity) to fully immerse themselves in the sets, costumes and props before the performance starts. The tactile tour is free of charge, but registration is essential. DJ and drinkies For the Saturday evening performance, there’ll be pre- and post-show DJ, drinks and dancing (9–10pm before, 11pm–12am after). Entry is free, but make sure you get a ticket to the show. Thu 15 Feb, 7.30–8.30pm Fri 16 Feb, 7.30–8.30pm Sat 17 Feb, 2–3pm + 10–11pm Theatre Royal Studio Preview: $40 + BF $50 / $40 + BF Warning: This show contains nudity, bright and moving lights, and loud sounds.
