The Philippine Snow White: from small supporting role to cheerful leading role.

Choreographer Eisa Jocson, who lives in Manila, observes the seemingly universal happiness of Snow White from a particular perspective: Disneyland Hong Kong is the largest employer for Philippine dancers in that region. Because of their skin colour, though, they are only cast in meaningless shadow roles.

In Princess, Jocson, together with performer Russ Ligtas, reverses these roles. They analyse and reconstruct the prototypical body language, the behaviour, the voice of the idealized fantasy princess. Because Snow White is not being played by a white actress, the duo rewrites, as it were, the preprogrammed, dominant narrative. Suddenly, the Philippine body that usually plays only a marginal role is catapulted into a role in the female centre of attention.

☞ Performance in the framework of The future is feminist, a programme focussing on feminism today.
