Produced by Benilde’s Dance Program and in collaboration with Team Elite and Team Package Makers, Beneath is a thesis dance theater production of Carlos G. Serrano III, who is both the director and producer of the play, and currently taking Bachelor of Performing Arts in Dance at Benilde. This production will show dance performances about the unexplored familiar in the society. The show aims to inspire and educate on the reality of the interrelation of things that people experience every day and often go unnoticed that this reciprocal relation all boils down to one root cause.
The theme is inspired by the marginalized, underprivileged, and underrepresented sectors of the society such as women and children, LGBT, senior citizens, farmers, fisherfolk, persons with disability and those living in informal settlements. These types of people have the same needs as much as what dance needs as well – the need to be seen and be felt. The event will be graced and be given with full entertainment through featuring different homegrown renowned artists.
