Kapit Dramatizes Story of Survival from Typhoon Yolanda
Manila-based independent theatre and cultural artists, Issa Manalo Lopez and J Laspuña, collaborated in creating “KAPIT”, a docu-theatre and live multimedia performance that dramatizes the experiences of those who survived super typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan in Leyte and Samar on November 8, 2013.
This project, which premiered at the Karnabal Festival last May 2015, centers on the alarming devastation brought by the storm, the unresolved conditions of the survivors, and the glaring impact of climate change in the Philippines.
“KAPIT” is a story of survival and strength of spirit and we aim to present this to a wider audience. As artists, we re-tell this inspiring, yet unsettling event to create a deeper understanding of the reality of those who suffered the wrath of typhoon Yolanda.
We believe in the power of ART and PERFORMANCE and intend to uphold our roles as storytellers, cultural bearers, and creative channels of people’s ideas, emotions, discoveries and experiences, all of which build our identity as a Filipino society.
With the use of VERBATIM and MONODRAMA techniques, 2 Actors will portray 55 characters. See how an interview is turned into a live performance.
The show will run from March 11 (8pm) to 12 (8pm) at the Pilar Hidalgo Auditorium, Girl Scouts of the Philippines, National Headquarters.
