Tanghalang Pilipino stages Anak Datu

TANGHALANG Pilipino stages Anak Datu on Sept. 16 to Oct. 9 as the second offering of its 36th season. It is the maiden production at the newly built Tanghalang Ignacio Gimenez (Blackbox Theatre) at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. A play with music, the story is a multi-story production that banners peace through the intertwining of conflicts in a folk tale, a piece of stark social realism, and an all-too-familiar family drama. It is based on a short story written by National Artist for Visual Arts Abdulmari Imao and adapted for the stage by veteran playwright Rody Vera, it is directed by Chris Millado. Anak Datu follows a man in the Sulu Archipelago during pre-colonial Philippines who was born in captivity and grows up believing his father is a former pirate until he discovers the truth. This short story gave birth to Mr. Vera’s stage adaptation adjacent with other events in the history of Mindanao including the Jabidah Massacre and the personal lives of Abdulmari Imao’s family in the 1970s. The play stars Marco Viaña, Fernando “Nanding” Josef, Antonette Go, Lhorvie Nuevo, Tex Ordoñez-de Leon, Carlos Dala, and Hassanain Magarang.
