THEATER BYTES: Festival Of Plays, Open Mic, Bazzar At DITO: Bahay Ng Sining

How do you feel about this story?


This September and October, THE IKARUS THEATER COLLABORATIVE together with THE LANGGAM PERFORMANCE TROUPE, DEUS SEX MACHINA and PRAXIS LITERARY COLLECTIVE invites you to THEATER BYTES, a festival of plays that tells our stories, a peek into the hearts of six inspired auteurs, with three daring theater companies at the helm.

Set A: September 14, 28, October 12
5pm Open House/Bazaar/Open Mic
7pm The Launch of Janus
8pm Grandpa’s Dead
9pm Alter

THE LAUNCH OF JANUS explores the idea of ‘advancing’ the creative process, specifically what would happen if technological intervention eventually replaces the very tools that we hold dear as artists, which are human imagination and effort.

THE LAUNCH OF JANUS is written and directed by Jenny Logico-Cruz and Blonski Cruz, and performed by THE LANGGAM PERFORMANCE TROUPE starring Joel Garcia, Betty Uy-Regala, Andres Romeo, Jessa Espina, and Justin Ayran.

An embarrassing conversation about sex, identity, family politics, relationships, and inappropriately-timed propositions ensues when Oscar spots Tom and moves to the back pew. Things get even more awkward when Margaret joins them and confesses to killing Elroy.

GRANDPA’S DEAD is co-directed by Marco Sumayao and Glerren Bangalan and performed by DEUS SEX MACHINA.

When it comes to questions of intimacy and identity, are we able to become who we truly are in this alternate world?

ALTER is a spoken word devised play directed by Justin Ayran (head writer) and performed by CJ Maramara (writer and actor) and Hannah Pauline Pabilonia (writer and actor)

Set B: September 21, October 5, 19
5pm Open House/Bazaar/Open Mic
7pm Plug and Play
8pm Compass
9pm :kek:

Ever wonder how it all started? Experience the fun and exciting moment as we use the first PLUG & PLAY for Ikarus’ very first home at DITO: Bahay ng Sining

PLUG AND PLAY is written by Joel Garcia and Marya Dela Torre, and performed by Ahlex Leyva and Opaline Santos.

Many events in our lives can now be preserved through technology like web messaging and voice recordings in everyday depositories of permanence like phones and computers. This gives us the opportunity to look back on, and probe into our experiences more objectively and more specifically to answer the vague but truly human question of “Why am I?”

COMPASS is written and directed by Kit Singson and performed by Chic San Agustin-de Guzman.
