Carlos Celdran's Livin’ la Vida Imelda


Carlos Celdran Livin’ la Vida Imelda show at Silverlens gallery is a fresh and creative show inspired by power, disco, parties, politics, architecture and the iconic Imelda Marcos.
Carlos Celdran brings his highly entertaining walking tours of Manila--the Imelda inspired tour Livin’ la Vida Imelda to a gallery setting at Silverlens Lab (SLab).  

I watched the show and I can promise you that it will be the best show you'll ever see in this side of town.  

Carlos Celdran transformed his walking tour into a performance art. Collaborating with Toronto artist Eric Quebral who rendered the buildings of the CCP complex, the PICC, Coconut Palace, Film Center and Folk Arts Theater in black masking tape on the gallery's pristine white walls.


Livin’ la Vida Imelda uses great music, lighting, old photos, acting, dancing-and-singing and shouting performers, and the pretty looking guy playing Mrs. Marcos.


                                                       
Carlos Celdran recreates history from a unique perspective. His script is full of delicious bits of chizmiz, mixed with historical trivia and fearless name dropping. Carlos Celdran tackled the story of former First Lady Imelda’s early years,her idyllic Leyte childhood, her beauty queen background, the courtship with young congressman Ferdinand Marcos. Expect to hear about the Film Center controversy, Ninoy Aquino’s assassination, the 1986 snap elections and subsequent People Power. Carlos Celdran recounted everything with humor. 
                                                  
The no-holds barred Carlos Celdran, made jokes about everything from the age of Senator Juan Ponce-Enrile to the size issues of former President Marcos. Carlos Celdran made a unique analysis of what the Marcos years did to the Philippines. Carlos Celdran said that the Marcoses promoted arts and culture and nurtured corruption and abuse, built bridges and buildings but tortured student activists. He said that the late Ferdinand Marcos was a brilliant man who allowed his beautiful wife to use her strange brand of disco diplomacy to cut deals with other dictators and dream up bizarre projects.

Inevitably, the story leads us to the EDSA Revolution, when Ferdinand and Imelda were skirted off to Hawaii (did Marcos really think Paul Laxalt meant Paoay and not Hawaii?) Carlos Celdran also said that Imelda sang “New York, New York” on the plane on the way to Hawaii. Just when you think it all ends there, Carlos Celdran provides a very funny and ironic epilogue. Imelda Marcos is indeed back--back in power (as Congresswoman of Ilocos Norte), back in society (launching her own costume jewellery line and as Carlos Celdran claims, eating pizza at the checkout counter of Price Smart), and firmly, in her place as an icon of our times.

Carlos Celdran LIVIN’ LA VIDA IMELDA in Silverlens’ Slab has 15 show dates: February 7, 8, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24; March 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10.

Vicky Belo: Back in Manila


Vicky Belo: Back in Manila
Dr. Vicki Belo is now back in the Philippines. She arrived earlier this morning in Manila today, Monday, February 20, 2012 and she immediately Tweeted to tell her followers that she has landed.
"Hi twerps I'm baaack. Thank you for all your prayers and support . It really helped me not to be so sad and kept me strong."

The controversial doctor created a funny scene at the airport when she tried to avoid the press by using a wheelchair and covered herself with a pashmina.

She related the story with the following messages:

"Comedy at the airport. I tried to avoid the press by riding a wheelchair and covering myself with a pashmina . It was almost perfect.

But my Driver was not where he was supposed to be. The. 3 minute wait seemed like an eternity then someone shouted . Nandyan si Dr. Belo naka wheelchair. 

Luckily only a few got to me . My departure was much better and seamless . No one saw me talaga . To all those who care

I'm doing ok. I'm still sad of course but it would be weird if I wasn't since in 3 months we would have been together 7 years. Im trying to figure out what lesson I'm supposed to learn from this."

Dr. Vicki Belo went to LA last week to celebrate her first Valentine's Day alone. She was supposed to be with Hayden Kho on that trip but she decided to leave the country alone after that controversial tweet she made that involved Nancy Castiglione.
While Vicky Belo was out of the country, news broke out that she has finally called it quits with Hayden. It was confirmed by Butch Francisco, one of Vicki's closest friends whom she called before leaving for LA.
