Music, dance, and theater artists from the University of the Philippines
perform the Komedya, also called moro-moro among the Tagalogs, in a new
play entitled Putri Anak, Isang Bagong Komedya. The production is one of the
year-long series of events celebrating the UP College of Musics centennial

Putri Anak features a composite text from the celestial maiden narratives
common in South East Asian cultures and showcases performance elements
adapted mostly from the San Dionisio Komedya, which includes, among
others, the dicho, loa, marcha, pasadoble, sintahan, laban, and gran batalla.
The production also showcases Komedya movements, enhanced by Filipino
and Southeast Asian performance traditions, with inspiration taken from
Indonesias Tari Java (Javanese court dance), Indias Bharata Natyam, and
the martial arts sagayan, arnis, and pencak silat.

As its lead innovation, the Bagong Komedya responds to the need for a
contemporary Filipino performance by combining the rich music and
performance traditions of the Philippines and its Asian neighbors that will
hopefully be appreciated by the more cosmopolitan taste of a present-day

The music is inspired by traditional and hybridized Southeast Asian music

forms. The Philippine kulintang is used as springboard of the music of the
play and references musical styles present in theater forms such as randai,
norah, makyong as well as rituals and ceremonies such as the caao,
sagayan and sinulog. The half-sung, half-declaimed rhyming verse of the
narrative text is woven into the dialogue, based on the dicho of the San
Dionisio Komedya, and interspersed with a few songs.

The shift from a theatre of conflict and division to one of unity is another of
the Bagong Komedyas innovation. Putri Anak seeks to present a theatre of
peace and unity, free of religion-based discrimination and violence, and
which instead celebrates Asian culture, heritage and artistic expression.
