HEU students perform in Lysistrata ng Bakwit

Graduating Child Development and Education student Therese Joy Bayoneta and third year Communication student Jessa Mae Sicat were part of the cast of Lysistrata ng Bakwit directed by the esteemed Ricardo Abad. It was staged at The Doreen Black Box, Arete Arts Wing, Ateneo de Manila.

Therese played alternating roles as Babaeng Taguilid and reporter while Mae played the role of a housing agent.  Both landed the roles after undergoing rigorous auditions, workshops, and rehearsals.  Both are also part of the Teatro Kolehiyo ng Miriam as president and member, respectively.

Lysistrata ng Bakwit is an adaptation of Aristophanes' Lysistrata, a comic satire on women and war.  Set in Marawi City during the crisis, it is a vehicle for peace education among the students.  Kristine Marie Lesaca, assistant principal for Student Affairs in the Lower School and Center for Peace Education associate, facilitated a workshop which provided the cast and production crew with an overview of the need for peace-building strategies, particularly on the interpersonal level.

The play was directed by Dr. Ricardo Abad. It opened last April 17 and ended with its gala show last May 5.  Lysistrata is a production of Tanghalang Ateneo, Miriam College, and Ateneo Fine Arts under a CHED Salikha Creative Grant.
