(By the theater collective composed of Layeta Bucoy, Tuxqs Rutaquio,Nanding Josef & the TP Actors Company)
Directed by Tuxqs Rutaquio
Category: theater
Based on the findings of artist-researchers as well as first-hand testimony from government whistle-blowers and anonymous syndicate insiders, the theater collective creates a mind-bending analysis of corruption and graft. A suspense thriller which - by combining traditional theatre with live interviews and unscripted performances - blurs the line between reality and fiction as it reveals the shady politics and unethical business practices so prevalent in the Philippines today. WALANG KUKURAP will also address the continued atrophy of the Filipino identity and how this decay lends itself to the greatest corruption of all - the coopting of national character and self-worth for short-term material gains.
Dates & Time: 5 & 6 October at 8:00 PM
6 & 7 October at 3:00 PM
Venue: Tanghalang Huseng Batute (CCP Studio Theater)

tanghalang pilipino’s STAGE SHOW (Musical) By Mario O’Hara

Directed by Chris Millado
Choreography by Denisa Reyes
Category: musical theater
Mario O’Hara’s STAGE SHOW is the story of aging veterans of Filipino stage shows/bodabil caught between love for their art and economic survival. This grand musical play gives us a glimpse of a lost era in Philippine cultural history; the time of the ‘bodabil,’ a form of entertainment adapted masterfully by Filipinos from the American ‘vaudeville.’ Bodabil was a popular genre of entertainment in the Philippines from the 1910s until the mid-1960s. For decades, it competed with film, radio and television as the dominant form of Filipino mass entertainment. It peaked in popularity during the Japanese occupation in the Philippines from 1941 to 1945. Many of the leading figures of Philippine film in the 20th century, such as Dolphy, Bayani Casimiro, Ike Lozada, Patsy, Panchito, Chichay, Aruray, Menggay, Leopoldo Salcedo and Rogelio de la Rosa, began their showbusiness careers in bodabil.
