Ikarus Theater Collective Stages Samuel Beckett’s ‘Paghihintay kay Godot’

Share this article

Ikarus Theater Collaborative, the Marikina-based performance company is staging Samuel Beckett’s classic play, “Waiting for Godot.”

Paghihintay kay Godot

The tragicomedy by the Pulitzer winning writer is an absurdist play about two tramps who are trapped in perpetuity by a tree, missing a shoe. They cannot escape this self-made prison as they wait for a certain who, where, what, or why. Is it a God, a better future, salvation? We don’t really know… They’re simply waiting for Godot!

Ikarus Theater’s staging will be done in Filipino. “Paghihintay kay Godot” is a new translation by Joaquin Cerdas, who also translated The Little Prince into 2014’s PRINSIPITO: Yugyugan at Kantahan sa Saliw ng Kalawakan.

“Paghihintay kay Godot” will be directed by Jay Crisostomo IV director of Ikarus Theater Collaborative and the owner of DITO: Bahay ng Sining in J. Molina St., Concepcion Uno, Marikina City.

Synopsis by Translator Joaquin Cerdas

Ayon kay Vladimir kikitain sila ni Godot sa may puno sa kalagitnaan ng lusak. Hindi maalala ni Estragon ang usapan nila ni Godot. Hindi mapagkatiwalaan ni Vladimir ang kanyang alaala. Patuloy silang maghihintay. Habang naghihintay makikita nila si Pozzo at ang kanyang alipin na si Lucky. Masaya. Mabuti. Pampalipas oras. Aalis sina Pozzo at Lucky. Wala pa rin si Godot. Patuloy silang maghihintay. Darating ang isang bata. Sasabihin ng bata na hindi darating si Godot ngayong gabi. Baka bukas. Babalik sila bukas. At ulit. At ulit.

Paghihintay kay Godot

Ang Paghihintay kay Godot ay obra ni Samuel Beckett, isang Nobel Prize winner. Ito ay tungkol sa paghihintay. Subalit higit pa sa paghihintay ito ay tungkol sa pagkakaibigan, sa mga relasyon na bumubuklod sa ating lahat, sa katatagan ng isang tipanan: Kailanman, walang iwanan. Hindi man dumating si Godot, magkasama naman si Estragon at si Vladimir. At baka mainam na ‘yon. Lahat tayo naghihintay, lahat tayo may inaasam, siguro nakalimutan na natin kung bakit, pero patuloy pa rin tayo sa paghihintay. Ang dulang ito ay tungkol sa isang mayuming pag-asa sa kalagitnaan ng walang katapusang paghihintay.
