Southridge High School batch 1990, hosts for the school’s Alumni Homecoming in January 2015, kicks off the celebration of their 25th graduation year with a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary "The Bladed Hand" by Jay Ignacio back to back with a performance by internationally renowned Filipino improvisational theater group SPIT.
The event will be on June 28 at the library of iAcademy on HV dela Costa street, Salcedo Village in Makati (formerly Mondragon House). Jay Ignacio and SPIT Founder and Creative Director Gabe Mercado are both members of the class of 1990.
"The Bladed Hand" is a documentary on the global impact of Filipino Martial Arts. Produced, directed, written and shot by Jay Ignacio, the documentary traces the little known popularity of arnis, kali and eskrima across the Philippines, the United States, Russia and the rest of the world.
SPIT is known for their highly interactive, intelligent and classy brand of improvisational comedy. They mount the stage with no scripts and no predetermined plot lines or plans and weave stories, skits, songs and scenes based on audience suggestions. They have represented the Philippines in improv theater festivals in Hong Kong, Beijing, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
The screening of the film is at 6pm and the Spit performance will be at 8pm. Tickets are at 400 pesos each.
