As its final installment of the 24th season, blueREP is proud to present an original production, Shared Spaces, a monologue and song-cycle series. Set in a world where grander issues obscure individual experiences, Shared Spaces celebrates and reiterates the experience of the individual.
Six people blur the line between the enormity of contemporary concerns and their intimate circumstances. Through humour, discourse, or tears, they lay out their personal encounters with sexuality, religion, depression, relationships, and more, in pursuit of a representation of present day’s society; a community of individuals, with lives far more intricate than we are led to believe. With music by Kerrigan-Lowdermilk accompanying the written pieces, Shared Spaces aims to establish fresh, member-created productions as a stable part of Ateneo Blue Repertory’s repertoire.
The artistic team is composed of current and former blueREP members, combining experience with youth. Bibo Reyes is leading the show as the director, with Sab Jose as co-director. Abi Sulit serves as the musical director, alongside Celine Bengzon, who is working as the assistant musical director. Mica Fajardo is in charge of choreography, with Kyla Frencillo as the assistant choreographer. Set design is being taken care of, once again, by CJ Francisco, while Miggy Panganiban takes charge of lighting design. Ariel Quitangon is the costumes and make-up designer. Wrapping up the artistic team is Lara Antonio, who serves as the writing mentor.
Shared Spaces will run on April 29-30 and May 5 and 7, 2016, at the Black Box Theater, Ateneo de Manila University. The play will be open to all audiences. Tickets are priced at P300 each.
