Ballet Philippines’ “The Blue Moon Series,” a showcase of some of its most well-loved pieces featuring the choreography of such dance stalwarts as Alice Reyes, Agnes Locsin, Tony Fabella, Denisa Reyes, Bam Damian and Alden Lugnasin, among others, took the lead in the third-quarter citations of the 2014 Gawad Buhay!, the Philstage Awards for the Performing Arts, with collective 16 citations in the creative, performance and technical categories.

“The Blue Moon Series” got nods for, among others, Lugnasin’s “Aku,” Damian’s “After Whom,” Alice Reyes’ “Bungkos Suite” and Fabella’s “Tambol at Padyak”; the performances of Jemima Sanielle Reyes, Carissa Adea, Kris-Belle Paclibar-Mamangun, Victor Maguad, Jean Marc Cordero and Richardson Yadao; and Jonjon Villareal’s lighting design for Damian’s “After Whom” and Lugnasin’s costumes for his piece “Aku.”
