#TheaterPH - Tanghalang Ateneo presents A New Play Written and Directed by Guelan Varela-Luarca

In its 45th theater season, Tanghalang Ateneo, the Loyola Schools of Ateneo de Manila's longest-running theater company, will present Guelan Varela-Luarca's dystopian play Pag-ibig at Himagsikan | Love and Revolution.

Set in the not-so-distant-future Metropolitan Manila, Ardór asks the question: what if the only hope for social change is total annihilation—anarchy? The play focuses on the intricacies of the relationship between a young, angry, alienated activist and their cousin, a seven-year old—avatar? Indigo child? Messiah? Ardór follows the plight of activists as they attempt to stage a revolution and sacrifice everything—sanity, love, and life—for a traitorous, amnesiac, and traumatized nation.

In line with Tanghalang Ateneo’s 45th season aptly titled Pag-ibig at Himagsikan | Love and Revolution, this production aims to pay tribute to our collective desire for change, with hearts pumping and ready to burst—for love of country, for love of beauty, and for love of truth.     

Serving as the company’s first production for its 45th Theater Season, the cast will feature a mix of Tanghalang Ateneo alumni, fresh graduates, and members themselves of Tanghalang Ateneo:

Zoë de Ocampo and Yani Lopez as Z, Jam Binay and Camille Banawa as Astrid, Teia Contreras and Cholo Ledesma as Kali, joined by the ensemble: Rafael Jimenez, Kagi Umpad, Jemuel Dagu-ob, Robby Fernandez, Diandra Lee, Nicole Sintor Chua, Paul Adrian Martinez, Rafa Sumilong, Beatrice José, Bienne Dator, Adriane Mark Ungriano, Lawrence Miranda, Iago Guballa, Aly Solario, John Patrick Noynay, Aaron Panotes, Joey Madarang, Max Mostacho, Gelo Acosta, Dyas Adarlo, and Nicole Chua.
