ANINO, the Philippines premiere shadowplay collective, unveils it's latest creation "Florante at Laura" a free adaptation of the classic metric-romance by Francisco Balagtas.
While preserving and utilizing Balagtas' own words in some parts, the shadowplay makes the classic work more accessible by injecting, in other parts, modern language, visuals, humour and contemporary music.
"The dialogue is crisp, the narrative is post-modernish and yet discursively refreshing! A must-see for those who want Balagtas' works to be consumed perppered with a McDonaldish gravy of excitement! What a joy ride!"
