Sinulog winners stayed up late, crammed

SLEEPLESS nights and cramming paid off for the grand prize winners in the Sinulog 2009 grand parade last Sunday.

Buyogan choreographer Victor Cuenco said that when he was told the contingent will use bees as part of the concept, he got so excited with the possibilities he spent many nights without sleep just to come up with a production.

He said he had insomnia but he did not mind because he liked the idea of a contingent with bees.

Cuenco choreographed the Abuyog, Leyte contingent in the Aliwan Festival in Pasay City last year, but last Sunday was the first time in 12 years that Abuyog joined the Sinulog.

Buyogan’s presentation started with dancers as “bees” in a beehive that two boys hit with a slingshot.

The bees went after the boys, one of whom got stung several times and was lying unconscious and twitching on the ground before he was healed through the intercession of the Holy Child. (more)
