Share this article

Initially running from September 7-11 at Areté in Ateneo de Manila University last year, Lualhati Bautista’s “Dekada ’70”, adapted and directed by Pat Valera, returns in March 2020.

Starring Stella Cañete Mendoza as Amanda Bartolome and Juliene Mendoza as Julian Bartolome, “Dekada ’70” is the story of a family caught in the middle of the tumultuous decade of the 1970’s– the bombing of Plaza Miranda, the suspension of the writ of the habeas corpus, the proclamation of Martial Law, and the unlawful arrests of political prisoners.

Joining Valera (who also serves as dramaturg, co-composer and co-lyricist) in the creative team are Matthew Chang (music and lyrics), Dana Marquez (orchestrations), Ohm David (stage design), Meliton Roxas (lighting design), Jomelle Era (movement design), Hershee Tantiado (costume design), Eman and Pete Lacaba (additional text), Nicco Manalo (assistant direction), and D Cortezano (technical direction). The show is produced by Black Box Productions.
