In celebration of its Centennial year, the Department of English and Comparative Literature of the University of the Philippines-Diliman is staging Griselda Gambaro’s “Information for Foreigners,” under the direction of Anton Juan Jr.
Griselda Gambaro is one of the most distinguished writers of contemporary Argentina. Her play "Information for Foreigners” uses the participatory element of interactive theater to depict a world totally slipped from its moorings, in which murder, torture and execution seem part of the horizon of everyday life. The play enables its audience to interact with the performance as it adopts the role of a “tourist” in a carnival of mystery and the macabre.
Under the direction of internationally renowned Dr. Anton Juan Jr., the play features actors Ian Lomongo, Uleb Nieto, Peter Serrano, Carlo Pacolor Garcia, Rico del Rosario, Pat Valera, Paul Jake Paule and former ambassador Jimmy Yambao, among others, along with student participants of a series of theater workshops conducted by Anton Juan.
Assistant direction and dramaturgy by Pat Valera, sound design by Jethro Joaquin, technical direction by Ohm David, lights design by Meliton Roxas and costume design by Lhenvil Paneda.
The play runs September 20-26, 2010, 7 p.m. at the College of Arts and Letters Building, UP-Diliman.
