#TheaterPH - Quartered - A Night of Artistic Journey!

“QUARTERED” revolves around the different stories of artists as they discover their identities in the art scene. It will take you through the journey of the creative person. You walk hand in hand with their struggles, in continuous contention against expectations, labels, rejection, commercialism, and other forces compelling these artists to question whether the undulation between fulfillment and failure is worth it!

You help them decide by joining us in this unusual interactive performance where you are at center stage and the artists surround you with their difficulties and triumphs, with their misgivings and joys. You come and give them hope.
