Le Mariage Forcé

Written by Molière

How can the aged bridegroom be certain that his intended truly loves him and not another? As comically relevant today as it was in 1664.

The Tempest

A modern version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. My concept explores the idea of Shakespeare’s transhistorical relevance; how the themes in The Tempest would translate and adapt for a not too distant future.

Trainspotting in The Philippines

A reinterpretation of the movie “Trainspotting”, I chose to set my conceptual version in The Philippines, Davao City, 1996. At this time, Rodrigo Duterte was mayor of Davao City. He is linked to the vigilante group “The Davao Death Squad” formed around this time. His open campaign to purge The Philippines of anyone associated with illegal drugs by supporting an extrajudicial shoot-to-kill policy came about when he was elected president of The Philippines in 2016.
