DO,WAGER: a performance diptych on the vestiges of the Philippine American War
Written by Claro de los Reyes
Devised theatre by the Atlantic Pacific Theatre ensemble
Directed by Brisa Areli Muñoz and Artem Yatsunov
Join us for a limited remount run of Atlantic Pacific Theatre’s "DO,WAGER: a performance diptych on the vestiges of the Philippine American War" Atlantic Pacific Theatre’s performance diptych play format juxtaposes two distinct theatre experiences in a single presentation. In the case of "DO,WAGER", Part 1 is a devised participatory history play utilizing educational theatre conventions while Part 2 is an experimental one act play. APT’s performance diptych plays aim to band together theatre artists, public artists, and educators working to create an experience that situates itself between: history-based education, participatory theatre, and the experimental theatre tradition.
The play premiered in 2018 at the Downtown Art where Atlantic Pacific Theatre served as artists-in-residence.
