Benilde and Taxi Theater Stage Horror Play Mulagat
Manila, September 8, 2016 – The Arts Management Program under of the School of Design and Arts (SDA), De La Salle – College of Saint Benilde ties up with emerging theater group TAXI Theater to present the horror theatrical production, Mulagat, this October 2016.
Mulagat, a multisensorial horror theatrical play written and directed by Eric Villanueva Dela Cruz, makes use of Theater-in-the-Dark on some portions of the play, designed to provide an alternative experience to the visual bias of watching a play by plunging the audience in complete darkness to stimulate the other senses.
The story centers around a graduating architecture student, Nico, who wakes up in the middle of the night and investigates the strange sounds emanating from the hallway outside his condo unit. He stumbles upon a young girl looking for her brother. The tale unfolds in a series of eerie encounters that spirals down uncontrollably, escalating into a spine-chilling revelation.
Cast and Creative Team
The show stars Ike Castro, Japoy Dones, Tim Castillo, Denise Nayve, Cathrine Go, Jasper Jimenez, Dylan Ray Talon, Doori Chin and Kyle Confesor.
TAXI (Theater. Applied. Experiential. Immersive) Theater is composed of Imagitects (Imagination Architects) and XPgineers (Experience Engineers) – a group of young theater
practitioners and collaborators from various disciplines working with the creative process of synthesizing art and science to extend the boundaries of audience engagement and deliver
unique theatrical experiences.
The group is founded by Eric Villanueva Dela Cruz, a faculty of the Theater Arts Program in Benilde, who acts as one of its Creative Navigators together with fellow practitioners, Meann Espinosa, Julia Enriquez Cristobal, Norbs Portales and Tim Castillo.
