Ulitan: Maiba Taya @ Ateneo

"Ulitan: Maiba Taya"
Ateneo de Manila University (Quezon City)
May 11-12, 2007

From the Ateneo’s only socially-oriented theater organization that brought the productions Bombita, Ang Sistema ni Propesor Tuko, Satirika and Sandaang Panaginip, comes yet another socio-political comedy to look forward to this summer.

Re-staging its 24th season hit Maiba... Taya, Entablado brings you Ulitan: Maiba Taya, featuring Marcelino Agana, Jr.’s New Yorker in Tondo and Jose Bernard Capino’s The Commonwealth of Virginia.

Kaisarian: Pagtatanghal ng Bayan. Kaisa. Isa. Kasarian. Sari. Under the direction of longtime theater advocate Mr. Richard de Guzman, Ulitan: Maiba Taya! opens the organization’ s 26th season, celebrating themes of nationalism, unity and diversity, and gender sensitivity. . New Yorker in Tondo (Marcelino Agana, Jr.) Situated within one of the most infamous parts of Metro Manila, New Yorker in Tondo depicts current issues such as nationalism and more importantly that of colonial mentality. Centering on the lives of four magkababata, New Yorker tells the story of how a former ricecake vendor named Kikay, after a year’s stay in the city of New York transformed her into a Francesca and how such change affected the lives of the people she left here in the Philippines . More importantly, as the play progresses, it tends to stress that wherever one may go, she (as with Kikay’s case) would always carry the mark of her hometown.
The Commonwealth of Virginia (Jose Bernard Capino):
The Commonwealth of Virginia portrays the human experience of a small Filipino gay community in Virginia . The play shows the controversial yet colorful dispute between Mother, the queen of this community, and her rebellious, adopted child Allan who imitated her traditional “Miss Saigon” costume, and stole her American boyfriend. Amidst the Halloween get-ups and messy quarrels that led to horrifying revelations, the group struggled to preserve, not only their hairdos and make-ups, but also their national unity and their federacion.
