“Ding, Ang Bato!” at the Benilde Arts and Culture Cluster

The iconic Pinoy superhero takes flight once again as the Benilde Arts and Culture Cluster Stages “Ding, Ang Bato!”

The Benilde Arts and Culture Cluster (BACC) presents Ding, Ang Bato! A dance musical to be staged at the SDA Theater, School of Design and Arts, De La Salle College of St. Benilde at 950 Pablo Ocampo St. Manila.

The production marks the return to the stage of Darna, the Filipina superhero and icon created by the brilliant mind of comic book legend Mars Ravelo. Ding, Ang Bato! is a truly Pinoy musical production, as can only be envisioned and executed by the best of Philippine theater.

The production is the brainchild of Director and librettist Chris Millado and dramaturg Dr. Sunita Mukhi with the guidance of Mars Ravelo Karakters Inc and ABS-CBN. It is a modern retelling of the Darna lore, through the eyes of Narda’s Deaf brother Ding. As such, sign language is adeptly incorporated in the choreography of Denisa Reyes and Ernest Mandap. It is a contemporary tale brought to life by the theater world’s bright young talents, with the College of St. Benilde’s homegrown talent, including the Deaf performers of the School of Deaf and Applied Sciences.
