Kanser 2019 Gantimpala Theater Foundation 42nd Season

DSC04290Ang Kanser ay dula ng Gantimpala Theatre Foundation para sa kanilang 42nd Season ay hango sa nobelang ‘Noli Me Tangere’ na sinulat ni Dr. Jose Rizal noong 1887 sa panahon ng Kastila. Sa nobelang ito inilalarawan ang walang katarungan ng mga paring Katoliko at ang naghaharing pamahalaan. Ang dulang Kanser ay unang itinanghal noong 1979 sa Sentrong Pangkultura ng Pilipinas. Simula noong 1989 ito ay itinatanghal taun-taon ng Gantimpala Theater. Noong 2015, sung-through na musika binuo ni Joed Balsamo.

Ang 2019 produksyon ng dulang Kanser ay sa panulat ni Jomar Fleras at sa direksyon ni Frannie Zamora. Ayon kay Direk Frannie taong 1993 noong una niyang maiderehe ang dulang Kanser para as Bulwagang Gantimpala na itinanghal sa Nicanor Abelardo ng Sentrong Pangkultura ng Pilipinas. Sa paglipas ng mga taon, patuloy ang pagsasadula ng Kanser na pinamahalaan ng marami ng direktor. Kasama sa listahan si Direk Frannie Zamora sa mga direktor na nagbigay buhay sa dulang ito.

Ang Buod ng Kanser:

Nagsimula ang dula sa isang pagtitipon sa bahay ni Kapitan Tiyago na dinaluhan ng mga kilalang tao sa pamahalaan at simbahan. Ang pagtitipon ito ay para na rin sa pagbabalik ni Juan Crisostomo Ibarra y Magsalin mula sa Europa. Dito ay nagawang alipustain ni Padre Damaso si Ibarra. Sa pagtitipon din naganap ang pagtatalo ni Padre Damaso at Tinyente Guevarra. Napag-alaman ni Crisostomo Ibarra kay Tinyente Guevarra ang tunay na nangyari sa kanyang amang si Don Rafael Ibarra. Ang pagkakulong at pagkamatay nito at itapon sa lawa ang bangkay dahil sa paratang na ito ay erehe at pilibustero. Ang binatang Ibarra ay binalaan ng Tinyente na mag-ingat. Isa sa mga dahilan ng pagbabalik ni Crisostomo Ibarra ay ang kasiyahan na muling masilayan si Maria Clara. Sa kanilang muling pagtatagpo nagpalitan ang dalawa ng mga alaala.

Tinalakay rin sa dulang ito ang sinapit ng magkapatid na sakristan, si Basilio at Crispin na anak ni Sisa. Ang di makatwirang pag-bibintang ni Padri Salvi ng pagnanakaw kay Crispin at si Basilio dahil sa maling pagtugtog ng kampana ay pinagmumulta naman. Hindi sila pinauuwe bilang parusa sa ibinibintang sa kanila ngunit nakatakas si Basilio, ang trahedyang ito ang naging sanhi ng kanilang pagkawala. Si Sisa ay nag-alala na kanila dahil sa hindi pag-uwi ng mag kapatid. Hinanap niya ang mga anak sa buong bayan ngunit hindi nya nakita na siyang dahilan ng pagkabaliw nito.

Ipinakita rin sa dula ang pagtatagpo ni Elias at Ibarra sa bangka. Nakakita si Elias ng isang malaking buwaya. Mabilis na tumalon si Elias sa bangka na syang sinundan ni Ibarra upang tulungan na patayin iang buwaya.
Itinuloy ni Ibarra ang pagpapatayo ng paaralan sa bayan at mamuno ng mga sosyo-politikal sa bansa. Ngunit para kay Elias, ang pang-aapi ng mga Kastila ay mapipigilan lamang sa pamamagitan ng isang marahas na pag-aaklas. . Lumapit din si Ibarra kay Pilosopong Tasyo upang isangguni patungkol sa itinatayong paaralan. Binalaan din ni Pilosopo Tasyo si Ibarra na mag iingat sa kanyang plano at di sya dapat ang konsultahin. Mas mainam na sa mga Kura Kapitan ukol sa kanyang plano.

Samantalang si Padre Damaso naman ay tutol sa mga repormang mungkahi ni Ibarra. Sa isang sermon ni Padre Damaso panay ang parinig nya sa binatang si Ibarra. Binalaan ni Elias si Ibarra na mag-ingat sa araw ng paghuhugos para sa pinatatayo na paaralan. Nagkatotoo ang babala ni Elias, at isa sa mga kamag-anak ng nasawi sa pag hugos ng paaralan ay humihingi ng malaking halaga mula kay Ibarra ngunit ito ay tumanggi. Pumunta ang nasabing kamag anak kay Padri Salvi upang humingi ng tulong. Ang Frayle ay nagbigay ng pera sa kundisyon na isangkot ang pangalan ni Ibarra sa kilusan ng mga rebelde sa pagsalakay sa cuartel.
Ipinaalam ni Elias kay Ibarra na ibinibintang sa kanya ang pagsalakay sa cuartel ng mga Kastila, at siya’y iniutos na dakpin. Tutulungan sana syang makatakas ni Elias ng matuklasan nitong ang sanhi ng paghihirap ng kanilang angkan ay ang nuno ni Ibarra.

Nakatakas si Ibarra sa kulungan, binista at nag paalam kay Maria Clara. Ipinaalam naman ng dalaga kay Ibarra na ang tunay nyang ama ay si Padre Damaso. Sa muling pagkikita nila ni Elias sa gubat ay sinabi ni Ibarra na ang “tanging solusyon sa paghihirap ng bayan ay isang marahas na rebolusyon”.
Ang mga Nagsiganap;

Kiel Alo bilang si Crisostomo Ibarra, bagaman baguhan sa Teatro hindi maikakaila na may kahusayan ang kanyang pagganap, naipakita nya ang mga emosyon na kinakailangan sa kanyang karakter. Ang kanyang kaalaman sa pag awit ay naipamalas nya ito ng buong husay.

Rare Jireh Yzel Columna bilang si Maria Clara, hindi man baguhan sa larangan ng Teatro ngunit umakma sa kanyang katauhan ang karakter bilang isang mahinhing dalaga. Isa syang Soprano kaya naman hindi maikakaila ang husay sa nito sa pag-awit.

Carlo Mendoza bilang Padre Salvi, isa ring baguhan sa teatro na ang forte bilang mang-aawit ay pop/ballad. Isang hamon sa kanya ang karakter na ito sapagkat gawi ng isang matandang pari ang dapat nyang ipakita. Naging hamon rin sa kanya ang pag awit dahil iba ang kanyang nakasanayan. Naging matagumpay na naipakita o naipamalas nya ang tamang arte na hinihinigi sa karakter bilang Padri Salvi.

Carlo Manalac bilang si Elias, hindi man gaanong makita ang mga expression ng kanyang mukha dahil sa salakot na kanyang suot ngunit ramdam mo ang kanyang pagganap bilang isang rebeldeng binata na nagnanais na mapabuti ang bayan.

Maganda rin ang pagganap at karakter ni Padre Damaso na ginampanan ni Leo Ponseca, napaka “subtle”ng kanyang atake sa pagganap bilang si Padre Garote.

Isa rin ang karakter ni Richelle Joson bilang si Sisa, ang madalas na isang hamon sa mga mabibigyan ng pagkakataon gumanap. Naging “consistent”naman si Richelle sa kanyang karakter lalo na sa galaw at itsura. Isang hamon sa kanyang ay ang pag awit dahil sanay sya na umaawit sa koro.

Maliit man ang mga eksena ng mag kapatid na Crispin at Basilio, buong husay pa rin nila itong nagampanan, lalo na si JV Pascual bilang si Crispin.

Ang iba pang mga nagsiganap ay sina Roni Abario at Neil Tolentino bilang Pilosopo Tasyo; Roni Abario bilang si Don Tiburcio; Leslie Dailisan, Don Tiburcio; Sarah Maniquis, Donya Victorina; Reina Reas, Donya Consolacion; Angelo Moratilla Tinyente Guevarra; Frannie Zamora bilang si Kapitan Tiyago; Jesiela Gripo, Sinang; Juan Miguel Tecson, Basilio; Francis Cruz III, Lucas.

Mga nagsiganap bilang Taong Bayan;

Miguell Arnaldo, Jerecho Ramirez, Mark Tulipat, Joseph Navarro, Romualdo Delos Reyes, Vangie Inocencio, Kimberly Somoza, Beaulah Saycon.

Sa kabuuan, ang ang pagtatanghal ng dulang Kanser ay patuloy na sumasalamin sa sakit ng lipunan mula nuon sa panahon ni Rizal hanggang sa kasalukuyan. Ang istorya ng dulang ito ay patuloy nating nakikita sa mga nagdaan o sa kasalukuyan na patuloy na sumisira sa bayan. Sa paglipas ng panahon, maraming Ibarra At Elias ang nais mabago ang sistema ng lipunan.

Matagumpay pa rin inilahad ni Direktor Frannie Zamora ang mensahe ng dulang ito, kahit na ilang ulit na nyang idirehe ang dulang ito. Layunin niyang ilapit sa mga bagong henerasyon ng manunuod ang nobelang ito. Para sa kanya, kailangan sumabay ang teatro sa pag intindi sa takbo ng isip ng bagong kabataan upang maimulat ang kanilang kamalayan sa pamamagitan ng dulang Kanser.
Ang huling pagtatanghal ng dulang ito ng Gantimpala Theater Foundation ay bukas Oktubre 3 sa star Theater sa mga sumusunod na oras, 8am/ 11am/2pm

“Feel the rhythm, hear my feelings”

68268316_1114756602045814_762764364745801728_n

Today’s TeenGen is a lot more vocal and expressive with what they’re going through or what’s on their minds. Whether it be a kilig moment with crush, heartbreak, getting recognized in school, or a cause they strongly support, teens of these days can teach us a thing or two about having no holds barred.

It has been a year since our Homecoming to Teen Love, this year, Coke Studio brings us its 3rd Season: MyFeels. Indeed, no one does it better than Coke when it comes to launches with the Coke Studio Music Festival that commenced the Coke Studio Season 3: MyFeels last August 23 at the Circuit Makati with our hosts from the Summer Concert Ylona Garcia and Justin Quirino.

Headlined by Coke Studio Season 3 artists, we welcomed the rainy season with rush of water and stream of feelings ranging from love, freedom, independence, and moving forward. We moved to the groove with Iñigo Pascual, Ron Henley, Al James, Lola Amour, This Band, and Miss Sarah Geronimo while Janine Teñoso, Clara Benin, Bea Lorenzo, Silent Sanctuary, Brisom, St. Wolf, Just Hush, UDD, and Morisette serenaded us with their solo performances. Also giving us surprise numbers were Coke Studio Seasons 1 and 2 alums Ben & Ben, December Avenue, and IV of Spades.

We used to be shy about sharing what we feel, no matter what it is, to people around us even the ones we trust. Coke Studio: MyFeels is here to turn the tables, its time to celebrate our feels and make it known that no one can dictate the validity of our feelings.

Just when we thought 2019 is going too fast and time is running out for us, Coke Studio came to the rescue with its 3rd Season and made us realize to celebrate every single thing no matter how little they are, look out for the possibilities that learning from triumphs and slumps can give us, and keep in touch with the feels of people around us and ourselves.

 

Catch them every Saturday starting September 14, at 10am on ABS-CBN.

Tanghalang Pilipino’s Mabining Mandirigma

It is not only the deepest honor, but the most profound duty to be called to do what we can contribute to creative resistance and to the awakening, of political and social awareness through art and theater. Monique shared

Fresh from her directorial success of highly acclaimed One Billion Rising, Monique will play one of the most prolific Filipino heroes, Apolinario Mabini. Monique was last seen on the Tanghalang Pilipino stage in 1995, playing Maria Clara in the musical adaptation of ’Noli Me Tangere’. Before Monique, the role of Apolinario Mabini was played by Delphine Buencamino which she won the Philstage Gawad Buhay Award for Outstanding Female Performance in a Musical in the original staging in 2015.

Ejay Yatco, Musical Director is quick to point out the interplay between the historical and the contemporary, that makes Mabining Mandirigma different from other musicals. ”It takes a beloved piece of our history added with modern twists to resound with the Filipino audiences especially the Youth” he shares. One exciting thing you can expect is a new rap number, the modern elements such as steampunk music and flip-top to rap, Mabining Mandirigma tells a story of Apolinario Mabini in a heartfelt and imaginative way while keeping the spirit of what it means to be a true Filipino.
