Puppet X Change: Arts of Puppetry from Japan and the Philippines


Excerpt from "The Red-Hot Love of the Greengrocer's Daughter - The Watch-Tower Scene


Oshichi, a greengrocer's daughter,is upset after she found a sword lost by her lover Kichisaburo. The price for having made such a mistake is none other than seppuku. Oshichi wishes to inform him immediately but is unable to exit the city centre as all gates are closed and will only be reopened come daybreak. However , fire alarms are an exception to this rule. A desperate Oshichi spots a watch tower in the distance and proceeds to ring the bell, knowing all to well that sounding a false alarm is a serious crime.

The Song of Baylan: Ang Awit ni Baylan


The Song of Baylan implores the Ritual of Sinuyaman, a folklore among the tribesmen of the Manobo in southern Philippines. This particular ritual leads the audience into a traditional practices of deep reverence to the Manobo regalia and clothing, the Suyam. Baylan is a mythical hero of the Manobos who was once visited by the goddess Inajo in his cave. Baylan witnessed the graceful dance movements of Inajo and saw colors of red, black, white and yellow as he tried to imitate the goodess. These are the colors of Suyam. Although the goddess has left, Baylan kept dancing and he went out of the cave to teach the Manobos of his dance. This dance later developed to the unique weaving tradition in Southern Philippines.
