Tao Po (Is anybody home?)

Concert or Performance

23 Sep 2018

Four monologues that knock into our hearts and ask the hard question: Are we in touch with our humanity? TAO PO is a human experience.

A zumba instructor haunted by her husband and son’s ghosts, both victims of summary killings; a photographer whose sanity is questioned by the newspaper that employs him; the apparent double life of a policeman, sworn to uphold the law; and a young girl paying tribute to victims haphazardly buried in the notorious Tokhang Wall.

Filipina performance activist Mae Paner, popularly known as Juana Change, performs four monologues that render different perspectives on drug-related killings in Rodrigo Duterte’s Philippines. The performance is followed by a talkback session or forum where the audience gets to share their insights and interact with the director, actress and at times, with the persons portrayed in the performance.

TAO PO is performed in Pilipino with English subtitles. Warning: Contains moderate coarse language, adult themes (violence)
