Maség is a contemporary and folkloric dance production funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and commissioned by Kularts. It re-imagines the familiar William Shakespeare classic, The Tempest, and set in pre-colonial Philippine island of Palawan.
Choreographed by master artist Jay Loyola and directed by Alleluia Panis, it premiered in San Francisco in November 2014.
Florante Aguilar steps out of his usual style to create an original music score that uses indigenous instruments based on local traditional forms, mixed with contemporary elements.

Very honored to receive the 2016 Music Composition Awards from the Gerbode Foundation. Big thanks to Alleluia Panis DanceTheater and Kularts for the support and collaboration over the years - from Lalawigan (2009), Aswang (2013), Maseg (2014), She Who Can See (2015), Bae Makiling (2016), and now Utom (2018/2019).
Looking forward to writing Utom, a contemporary composition based on the music of the T-boli people and inspired by the mythical story of the deity Boi Henwu.
From Lalawigan, a call to resist and fight for freedom. Appropriate for these times. -Team FA Performed at the Asian Art Museum SF in 2011 Featuring Giovanni Jose (vocals), Sage Baggott (percussion), Ron Quesada (octavina), Jessica Ivry (cello)
