Crossing by Juan Ekis: Six characters. Three stories. One play.

Crossing (720)

Coffee shops for KapengBarako Club: Samahan ng mga Bitter, and hotel rooms for 20 Questions. These are just a few of the unexpected places that Duende Theatre has brought to artistic life with their unique brand of performance. The site-specific and intimate theater is their forte. It is theater created for specific non-theater sites, but their work expands this definition in new and original ways. With their moveable feasts, the uniqueness of an environment are essential parts of the fun, thought-provoking performances that they create in locations throughout Manila.

Having said this, Duende Theatre is staging a brand new play written by the two-time Palanca Award winning writer, Juan Ekis.


Takipsilim. Bukang-liwayway. Hatinggabi.

The past and the future meet in the present. Their paths meet along a short strip of pavement, as told through three separate stories surrounding six characters and their circumstances.

Cami, a young girl contemplating her immediate future, meets Serapio, a wise old beggar living in his past.

Grace, a worldly GRO tired of the life she’s been dealt, is confronted by Migs, a desperate youth brought to the brink by his uncertain future.

And Ian, a young man with a bright future, runs into Rusty, an old friend from his past.

Six characters. Three stories. One play.

Crossing by Juan Ekis.
