"Rizal +150" is a series of inter-active performances in public spaces investigating, re-imagining and re-envisioning Rizal and his works for the present generation and for the next 150 years. The series features collaborative works of sculptor Leeroy New and edge-work site specific theater company, Sipat Lawin Ensemble.
The public interventions aim to create inter-action between the artists, the pieces and the public allowing a broader range of Filipino audiences to participate in defining the legacy of a hero in contemporary times in contemporary language.
Rizal +150 seeks discourse on pop-nationalism and mass-producing Rizal, Rizal as an image in post-techno boom Philippines, Noli and Fili resonance in contemporary society, among others.
Rizal +150 is part of Sipat Lawin Ensemble’s "Rizal Sightings," a year-round campaign in collaboration with installation artist Leeroy New along with different institutions and network affiliations around the country.
