What price do we pay.. when everything is for sale?


What happens to a society that is overrun by greed and materialism? By shifting moral values and by acquisitive desires?

Collection, the much-awaited new work from acclaimed playwright Floy Quintos is a dark comedy that paints a disturbing picture of society obsessed with conspicuous consumption, surface glamour, and the endless, unsatisfying pursuit of the Next Big Thing. Collection closes Dulaang UP‘s 37th Season.

In this artistic vision of a materialist hell, a fictional government agency, the National Commission on the Disposal of Philippine Patrimony, has sanctioned the sale of historical and national treasures like the Banaue Rice Terraces, the Chocolate Hills and the Malolos Constitution. The proceeds go to a national lottery designed to alleviate poverty through dole outs.

Photography, Teatro Pilipinas, Theater By June 28, 2012 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Because my photos are really, really late, here’s a recap of what this was all about.

Celebrating its 35th Theater Season, Dulaang UP presents its fourth production, Amphitryon, a Roman comedy by Heinrich von Kleist with Filipino tranlation by Jerry Respeto and direction by Jose Estrella.

Amphitryon follows the story of King Amphitryon and his wife Alcmene, who became victims of Jupiter, a Roman god. Jupiter disguises himself to make love with Alcmene during the quest of King Amphitryon in Thebes. As the king return to his kingdom victorious from the battle they had won, Jupiter disappeared leaving Alcmene bearing their child. With what happen between the two of them, will Alcmene realize the person whom she made love with was not truly her husband and will Amphitryon discover that a god came to her wife during the time he was in his quest?
