LAOAG CITY – Ilocanos wanting to get a glimpse of world-class acrobatics à la “Cirque de Soleil” need not travel all the way to Las Vegas. In February, the Super American Circus will be gracing the city’s month-long Pamulinawen Festival to stage a similar display, with death-defying stunts, aerial ballerinas and jugglers.
City tourism officer Angel Lao said Wednesday that this year’s Pamulinawen Festival will be made extra special with the presence of the troupe’s 26 performers in a show to be held at the Laoag Centennial Arena on Feb. 3 to 5, with admission tickets ranging from PHP300 to PHP3,000.
For a chance to win exciting prices, Lao said sold “tickets will automatically be included in a raffle draw after the show.”
“Ilocanos will surely be entertained by the world-class performance as some of them were winners of the famous search America’s Got Talent,” he said in a press conference.
The troupe had just wrapped up the Metro Manila leg of their tour with performances at the Newport Theater in Pasay City from Dec. 21, 2022 to Jan. 8, 2023. The group will also perform in Cebu and Davao.
As part of the group’s charitable work, orphans and less-fortunate children will be treated to the spectacle for free. (PNA)
