“Suhi” headlines IPAG’s 33rd Season

Three, regarded as the eternal number, reflects double at 33.

Auspiciously, the IPAG celebrates life’s unending streams of drama, music, dance, literature, and the space arts with its 33rd Theatre Season. And what better way to celebrate ‘eternity’ in the performing arts than present productions inspired by the classics.

IPAG’s latest, Suhi, a new play by Steven P.C. Fernandez, recalls the Greek classic Oedipus Rex that is reshaped into our local postmodern settings. “The gods have decided,” so the play seems to say — performed in dialogue, dance, and music plus stunning visuals — have engrossed audiences who have filled up the Mini-Theatre since Suhi opened its run last Sept. 8.

The play performs at the MSU-IIT Mini Theatre until Sept. 18. It opens its road show at the Xavier University Little Theatre in Cagayan de Oro City on Sept. 20 to 22..

SugaTula, the acclaimed transcreation of the poems of Philippine South’s celebrated writers opens its road shows at the Capitol University in Cagayan de Oro in September 30.

Meanwhile, IPAG’s ‘classic’ Tales From Mindanao and Tatlo sa Isa will continue on their national tours in the last week of September and the first week of October in Manila and in Laguna.
