CAO presents “Si Pilandok at ang Bayan ng Bulawan”

Date Posted: Sep 17, 2010 at 01:06:50 AM


Entablado, a socio-political student theater organization from the Ateneo de Manila University fascinated theater-goers with a spectacular play entitled “Si Pilandok at ang Bayan ng Bulawan” last August 19 and 20 at the Adamson University Theater. The Cultural Affairs Office and the iamninoy-iamcory Movement worked together to bring the play to the school.

 

Directed by Jerry Respeto and Jethro Tenorio, this original Filipino musicale was topbilled by actors from Entablado. Four performances were presented to guests and the AdU community including a gala at 2:00 p.m. on the 19th. Atty. Julius Babista, director of the Office for Student Affairs, graced the gala.

 

The play written by Christine Bellen was inspired by the historic People Power Revolution of 1986 and used a popular folktale from the Maranaos of Mindanao to inspire unity geared towards nation-building. The play revolves around the travails of Pilandok, a trickster from the town of Bulawan, villagers and heroes Pantas (Wisdom), Banal (Faith), Yumi (Beauty), Gara (Wealth), and Lakas (Strength) as they portray unity in retrieving the bright star Bulawan from the greedy Datu Usman and the evil henchman Orochimaru.

 

The play is a wake-up call for Filipinos to take part in creating a nation immersed in solidarity, trust, and integrity as inspired by People Power and the life and death of heroes Ninoy and Cory Aquino.

 

After the play, an open forum was conducted with Mr. Boom Enriquez, Community Development Director of iamninoy-iamcory Movement, fielding the audience’s questions. Chat Gagola
