goodticklebrain: The number of Shakespearea…

goodticklebrain:

The number of Shakespearean characters who have a father but are, for some usually unspoken reason, missing a mother is often commented on. This isn’t to say that there aren’t any mothers in Shakespeare…. there are just a lot of missing ones. Let’s see what happens when we put some of them back.

Queen Lear would have SHUT THAT THING DOWN.

The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) in partnership with the British Council and Japan Foundation presents an adaptation of the Shakespeare classic The Tempest.

Written in the 1600s and thought by many critics as the last play that William Shakespeare wrote alone, The Tempest is set on a remote island where the sorcerer Prospero, rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skilful manipulation—conjuring up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King to the island.

Titled The Tempest Reimagined is a modern adaptation in Philippine context weaving together real stories from survivors of Typhoon Yolanda with the original Shakespeare text. It follows the stories of wizard-in-exile Prospero and Jaime, a native Leyteño fisherman who tells the story of a mystical storm.

Following the success of Lingap Sining, PETA’s two-year post-Yolanda efforts in Palo, Leyte, stories and interviews compiled served as inspiration for the play.

By juxtaposing it with a world classic that is as moving as eternal, The Tempest Reimagined is as much a tribute to the survivors as it is to Shakespeare, whose stories endure because of its continuing relevance to humanity.

Award-winning artists from the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and Japan come together and collaborate for this visually stunning production.

Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) artistic director Nona Shepphard directs the play and co-writes it in tandem with PETA artist-teacher Liza Magtoto of Rak Of Aegis and Caredivas fame. Hong Kong-based British artist Marsha Roddy designs the set and costumes.

PETA President CB Garrucho, who also leads the cast as Prospero, shares that the theater company “hopes for audiences to remove their fear of Shakespeare and discover how beautiful Shakespeare could be, especially if you bring into it an experience that’s familiar to you.”

Completing the cast are Renante Bustamante as Antonio; Yeyin Dela Cruz as Miranda; Meann Espinosa as Sebastiana; Topper Fabregas as Trinculo; Gio Gahol, Gab Pangilinan and Ian Segarra alternating as Ariel; Jenny Jamora as Alonsa; John Moran as Caliban; Bodgie Pascua and Gabe Mercado as Gonzalo; Norbs Portales as Jaime; Brian Sy as Ferdinand; and Jack Yabut as Stephano.
