The Dreamweaver Alignment of Stars
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of FEU’s President’s Committee on Culture, the FEU Theater Guild comes home to the FEU Auditorium with “The Dreamweavers,” written by Rody Vera and directed by Dudz Teraña who is now celebrating his 10th year as the Artistic Director of the university-wide theater organization. The first production of the FEU Theater Guild on its 85th theater season makes its way back to the historic FEU Auditorium after already being successfully staged in 2011 on the same stage that is now celebrating its 70th anniversary. The show shall run from December 6 to 7 with 3PM, and 7PM shows on the 6th, and a special 2PM show on the 7th. This play also marks the first-ever use of the FEU Auditorium as a venue for an FTG performance since its closing for renovation in 2015 and reopening in late 2018.
Three Girls Bound by a Piece of Cloth
Take a stroll down memory lane and experience the rural lifestyles of Filipinos during the 90s. “The Dreamweavers” tells the story of three girls, their separation, and their subsequent journeys through life still bound by their strong friendship. Watch as these girls almost force their way through lives paved with difficulties brought about by the general difficulty of starting out poor in a money-driven world while also being subjected to the skewed treatment to women of the pre-2000s era and how a single piece of cloth could be a priceless representation of love, loss, and healing.
The Teraña Legacy
This play serves as the first part of the celebration of Dudz Teraña’s 10th anniversary as the artistic director of the FEU Theater Guild.
