Being the first installment of the "Asian modern mythology trilogy", Mythology Upon the Table features some seven artists from five different Asian countries of different artistic realms. They include a dancer, a choreographer, a visual artist, a video artist and a performing artist. In the play, they meet at a dining table, to conduct an exchange as to "mythology." As Greek philosopher Epicurus has stated, "We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink:'


Princess - Eisa Jocson [2018]

{performer, co-creator}

In PRINCESS, Jocson, together with performance artist Russ Ligtas studies, reverse-engineers, and hijacks the prototypical body language, behavior, voice, and persona of Snow White—the first idealized fantasy princess of the Disney empire. Because Snow White is not being played by a white actress, the duo rewrites the dominant narrative. The Filipino body that normally plays only the marginal role is catapulted into the spotlight of the female central figure.
