Ballet is the leading form of artistic dance in the Philippines and the Ballet Philippines is one of the most important companies in the country. Every year Ballet Philippines continuously loses its soloists to Disneyland Hong Kong. This self-described “happiest place on earth” is now the most important employer for Filipino dancers, who are escaping the economic and political impasse of their home. Against this backdrop, Manila-based choreographer Eisa Jocson has now created a dance piece with five young dancers of the Ballet Philippines. In YOUR HIGHNESS, the classically trained dancers masterly alternate between stylized Disney gestures and standards of ballet classics like Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake – and explore the fine line between portrayals of happiness through ballet history and princess archetypes in a globalized entertainment industry. In her third appearance at the Summer Festival, Eisa Jocson presents YOUR HIGHNESS – her first large ensemble work – in Europe for the first time.
