This February, the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) celebrates its 40 years. In line with this, CCP will be inviting outstanding groups and productions that it has nurtured to perform on its august stage.
Ranaw will be staged on CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little Theater) on Feb. 20 and 21, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.
According to Steven Fernandez, IPAG’s Artistic Director:
“Ranaw” is significant especially to Iliganons because this was adapted from the research of Nong Diony Orellana, and is a fictional adaptation of Iligan’s ancestor – Bato Lakungan – which many orig Iliganon families claim their roots. It adapts from research of Northern Mindanao’s epic tales that articulate historical truths about our fragmented cultures today. Veteran homegrown artists perform in this production.
