Destiyero Theater Commune presents "Cubao Pagkagat ng Dilim", Tim Dacanay's adaptation of "Ang Mga Multo", "Ang Maligno", and "Ang Mga Manananggal" from Tony Perez' book "Cubao Pagkagat ng Dilim: Mga Kuwentong Kababalaghan".
In "Ang Mga Multo", the life of a happily married couple is disturbed when their antique chairs begin whispering in Ilokano. In "Ang Maligno", a woman who has resisted letting someone into her life suddenly finds a man on the street, observing her in her apartment. Finally, in "Ang Mga Manananggal", a student’s curiosity over the Manayon sisters turns into obsession when he learns of their sinister secret.
Destiyero Theater Commune was founded by a core group of young professionals in various fields such as the arts, academe, business, advertising and financial institutions who are brought together and bound by a love for theater. In 2009, the group first staged performances and readings in various venues (from bars to old houses) and theaters under the name Dulaang Laksambayanan, Inc.
In 2012, the core group reestablished and renamed itself as Destiyero Theater Commune. It aims to present theater works geared toward the development of critical thinking and aesthetic sensibility or responsiveness, and thought-provoking works that may lead to a reevaluation of belief systems and ideas.
