When in Manila, have you watched Dulaang Up’s Ang Nawalang Kapatid ? It’s staging again! Now’s your chance to watch it!
Coming off a hugely successful and critically acclaimed extended run, Dulaang UP’s Ang Nawalang Kapatid stages benefit shows on July 4-6, 11-13 (Friday to Sunday only) in celebration of UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts’ 55th Anniversary. Proceeds are for the improvement of UP Diliman’s famed theaters- Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater and Teatro Hermogenes Ylagan- bastions of DUP plays.
If you missed or would like to relive the Filipino retelling of one of the world’s oldest and longest epic poems, the Mahabharata, this is your chance to watch the production praised by critics for its direction, text, music, and choreography. Critics laud the production as “an astonishing theatrical experience”, “an elegant and regal Filipino adaptation”, and Dexter Santos’ direction as “breathless and daring”.
Originally staged as a children’s play, this fiercer, bigger, and more complex staging of acclaimed playwright Floy Quintos’ adaptation is under the direction and choreography of Santos, with original music by Ceejay Javier.
Ang Nawalang Kapatid is staged at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd floor Palma Hall, University of the Philippines Diliman.
