Mark your calendars and prepare for a frightening theatrical show as TAXI Theater (Theater. Applied. Experiential. Immersive) and De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde welcome Halloween with the production of Mulagat.
The story centers on Nico, a graduating architecture student, who wakes up in the middle of the night and investigates the strange sounds emanating from the hallway outside his condo unit. He stumbles upon a young girl searching for her brother.
The tale unfolds in a series of eerie encounters that spiral down uncontrollably, escalating into a spine-chilling revelation.
A multi-sensorial horror theatrical play written and directed by Eric Villanueva Dela Cruz, it integrates the use of Theater-in-the-Dark style in some portions of the play. It is designed to plunge the audience in complete darkness to stimulate the other senses and provide an alternative to the visual bias of watching a play.
The maiden production of TAXI Theater will be presented in cooperation with the Arts Management Program under the Culture and Arts Studies cluster of the college’s School of Design and Arts (SDA).
TAXI Theater is group of young theater practitioners and collaborators from various disciplines identified as Imagination Architects and Experience Engineers, working with the creative process of synthesizing art and science to extend the boundaries of audience engagement and deliver unique theatrical experiences.
The group is founded by Eric Villanueva Dela Cruz, a faculty of the Theater Arts Program in Benilde, who acts as one of its Creative Navigators together with fellow practitioners, Meann Espinosa, Julia Enriquez Cristobal and Norbs Portales.
Mulagat runs until Oct. 29.
Screening continues on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. until the final show at 8 p.m.
SDA Black Box Theater is on the 6th Floor, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts Campus, 950 P. Ocampo Street, Malate, Manila.
