What prompted UPV Hublag Dance Company to stage a concert that isn’t as conventional as most dance concerts are is the fact that we have grown tired of being a bunch of teenybopper jell-o’s that move so ever joyously to mainstream popular beats. We wanted to send out a clear message: we have grown. We have matured. We can now deal with sex, and violence and mental twistedness: qualities that make every mature life one heck of a despicable (yet pleasurable) experience. The UPV Hublag Dance Company put together 11 contemporary dance routines with abstract concepts translated into fluid movements. Using independent non-mainstream music, we created a montage of dark symphony of forms in a visual extravaganza. We succeeded in sending our message to our audience: this is a crazy planet. We had two separate shows to cater to more audiences as our venue was limited to 200 seats. Observing our audiences’ reactions during the show was a rewarding pay-off for all the handwork we all had to endure in the dance company. Our audiences gasped, held their breaths, heaved a sigh of exasperation, cried and ultimately applauded the 45-minute non-stop execution of full-house energy. It was the most demandingly uncertain show, to be honest, because we weren’t sure how receptive our audiences will be with the way we depicted fetishes, insanity, discord, and chaos. It caused us one injury in the person of our senior company member JC Albances. He met in an erroneous landing from a leap and broke his leg. The doctor advised him to take an 8-week respite as his leg gets healed with the help of cement. In the many shows that the company has done, this is one show where everything was delivered without much help from the university. We funded ourselves, sold tickets, looked for sponsors, stitched our own costumes, sought help from friends to help us out in the production. It was a guerrilla approach to production and that’s what made our victory even sweeter. There are so many people to be thankful for, and we are forever indebted to them for life. This concert is a double achievement for UPV Hublag Dance Company because we have defied all the challenges along the way and have been duly appreciated and noticed by our most loving spectators. We have been drugged, so we will keep doing more of these in the future. WE ARE THE UPV HUBLAG DANCE COMPANY. Photos courtesy of

Perhaps the most sublime and the strongest piece is this one entitled "Elsa" by Anna Marie Anasis (also portraying the title role). This piece embodies a woman's struggle for freedom wherein she herself cannot define as to what binds or traps her. A 'piece de resistance' of the concert.
