Fresh from their Arts Month stint performing in Bicol, Manila, and in different places in Batangas, the Lipa Actors Company is now poised for their third season finale. Essaying the works of Sophocles, the company will be staging Oedipus The King in an exciting dance theater production. This sole community based theater organization in the province is known for fresh and dynamic works on stage always dubbed as pioneering theater work in Batangas. With their signature performance still earning positive reviews around, the company is now set to do an entirely different show this time performing a dance theater. According to an interview with Joemar Sustento LAC Associate Artistic Director;
“Excited kaming lahat sa show na ito dahil kakaibang panlasa ang gagamitin namin dito.”
Adding more excitement to the group is that their Artistic Director Luisito Nario will be also creating dance pieces for the play. Mr. Nario is one of the most sought after local choreographer before he concentrated to theater in 2010.
“Matagal-tagal na ring hindi gumagawa si Sir Lui ng sayaw, kaya parang come back niya ito as choreographer” Sustento adds.
Creating the production design is Sustento who has been doing design for LAC since 2011. The music will be coming from LAC Music Department headed by very promising composer Mr. Kio Callado.
The company will be attending contemporary and classical dance training at Lipa Ballet School as part of their preparation. LBS is a partner school of LAC for its 4th season. Together with Lipa Ballet School, the company will premiere a ballet theater production Ang Luha ni Kumintang, Sayaw at Pag-ibig coming August this year. Yet creating milestones for local community, Sustento explains;
“Hindi naman namin iniisip na kami lagi una kasi hindi naman talaga kami nakikipag-unahan… Kumbaga, bahagi ito ng programa ng grupo. Kung sa palagay ninyo kami ang nauna, salamat po. Pero ang mas gusto namin ay kung kami talaga mauna, sana may sumunod sa mga adhikain naming ipag-tagumpay ang Batangan Talent…”
