in association with b current performing arts
Set in Manila, during World War II, and drawn from the long tradition of Philippine folklore, legends, and Indigenous spirituality, HILOT weaves the tangible with the intangible to tell a story of unexpected bonds formed during cataclysmic change. Written by Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, and directed by Jasmine Chen, this interdisciplinary story explores the social and political consequences of war and occupation in the Philippines and its impact through generations.

ABOUT b current performing arts: For over 28 years, b current has produced outside-the-box performance pieces, ideas, workshops, and mainstage productions. They splashed onto the scene in 1991, when ahdri zhina mandiela founded the company, and brought to Toronto the first ever production of a Dub Theatre script, mandiela’s dark diaspora… in dub. The kinetic artistic energy from this fuelled their pioneer work, feeding and shaping the future of Canadian performance art through culturally-rooted creation. Since inception, b current has developed scores of internationally celebrated artists and their works, with a focus always on engaging the community and creating space for diverse voices to be heard.
