Ballet Manila closes 23rd performance season with DEUX




After a spectacular 23rd performance season, Ballet Manila is set to close its curtains with Deux, a double header that gracefully combines classical and contemporary ballet. The show will be held at the Aliw Theater, CCP Complex on March 2 and 9 at 6PM and March 3 and 10 at 3PM.




The first chapter of the show will open with classical vignettes. It will highlight “Les Sylphides,” also known as “Chopiniana” in Russia, a romantic dreamy white ballet that depicts a lone danseur (The Poet) surrounded by his muses – white-clad sylphs or air spirits, dancing in the moonlight. While there is no plot, its lingering music by Frederic Chopin and lyrical choreography by Michael Fokine evoke the illusion of ethereal weightlessness which characterized the romantic era of ballet where technique is the focal point, especially the intricate pointe work of ballerinas.




From this dreamy ambiance, the audience will be transported to the second chapter filled with contemporary numbers, and exhilarating rock and roll beats in the world premiere of Martin Lawrance’s The Winding Road set to the legendary music of The Beatles. The young or old will surely connect to the music and lyrics of I Saw Her Standing There, Here, There and Everywhere, Something, The Long and Winding Road, She Loves You, and many more!




“It has been a very exciting and rewarding 23rd season for Ballet Manila. It kicked-off with electrifying productions that formed part of our “Tour de Force” and now we’re poised to close it with Deux,” says Ballet Manila CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde. “We thank our audiences for their continued patronage and support and we hope to see you all again when the curtains rise for our 24thseason.”

Prestone PH’s Anak ng Mekaniko Scholarship program bags Silver Anvil Award




Pasig City, February 15, 2019—Prestone Philippines, a leading innovator of cutting-edge coolants, brake fluids, and motor oils, bagged a silver award for its Anak ng Mekaniko Scholarship Program during at the 54th Anvil Awards.




Presented annually by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP), the Anvil Awards is recognized as the premier award-giving body in the communications industry that symbolizes excellence in public relations.




Prestone’s Anak ng Mekaniko Scholarship program emerged as one of the recipients of the coveted award under the PR Programs Targeted at Specific Stakeholders category.




In line with its 90th Anniversary, Prestone initiated the nationwide search aimed at choosing nine students, who deserve a chance at receiving a tertiary education through the Anak ng Mekaniko Scholarship program.




“Prestone designed this program to help local auto mechanics not just by providing them with top-of-the-line products to use for their livelihood, but more importantly, could ease the financial burden of sending their children to school,” said Paolo Lao sales and marketing director of Clorox Southeast Asia.

The program also shines a light on the fundamental human right to a good education regardless of one’s age, gender or status. It puts into focus the lengths to which parents would go to give their children a better life.



The scholarship program did not require the nine selected scholars to enroll in automotive technology or a similar vocational course. Instead, it was set up to provide a free college education for any degree that they want to have.




Receiving the award during the Anvil Awards’ Gabi ng Parangal were Prestone executives, together with Kieth Bryan Perez, one of the recipients of the scholarship grant, and his parents, as well as representatives from Prestone’s communication and activation partners Themeactive, Inc. and PRC, Inc.
