Doing

“DOING is an absurdly beautiful abstract piece about humanity and the purpose of existence. This play answers the meaning of life. Or does it? It does? Does it? It definitely does… not?..”

Le Mariage Forcé

Written by Molière
Directed by Ellen Wiltshire

Presented at NIDA’s Studio Theatre
12-15 December 2018

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.

Expo NIDA 2018

A collaborative project to design and install the exhibition for all 104 students across 12 cohorts graduating from NIDA in 2018 — including myself! From concept and curation to drafting and construction, we explored the ideas of process, collaboration and connection between NIDA’s different cohorts.

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.
