BABAE is a female interplay between the animal and sensual qualities of ritual and power. The piece reconfigures what it means to invoke the power and mystical practices of women as witches.
Joy Alpuerto Ritter is an artist of many facets. In “Babae” she combines Mary Wigman’s famous expressive dance solo “Hexentanz” with elements of voguing, contemporary and traditional Filipino dance.
