and in Ateneo de Manila University (2007).
For this new production, “ FLUID ” is being restaged by the Benilde Technical Theater Batch 111.
“ FLUID ” is written as a series of scenes in different locations featuring three pairs of characters who seemingly have nothing to do with each other. Amir is a struggling and frustrated young painter whose life is about to be changed by Mira a wealthy art collector who dreams of discovering new talent. Jom and Alben are passionate theater actors torn between their passion for their craft and the lure of fame. Renata is a seemingly batty orchestra coordinator out to defend the dignity of her orchestra when it is hired to play at a society wedding by the overbearing events coordinator, Simone. All these unique and clashing characters come together unexpectedly at an art exhibit where their impulses lead to joyful mayhem.
Written and directed by Floy Quintos, the comedy is about young Filipino contemporary artists
struggling to make a name for themselves as they negotiate the tricky terrain between Love, Art and Compromise.
The cast of “ FLUID ” is made up of professional actors. Red Turnip Theater’s Ana Abad Santos
who originally created the role of Mira in 2004 reprises her role.
Kalil Almonte last seen in “Sintang Dalisay” and “Games People Play” plays Amir.
JC Santos, fresh from his tint in Hong Kong’s Disney Land and Singapore’s Universal Studio, plays the ambitious Jom
while Russell Legaspi last seen in this year’s Labfest plays the earnest Alben.
Amihan Tanedo Ruiz and Gel Basa both last seen in “Breakaway Antigone” play Renata and Simone respectively.
Musical Theater actor Tony Falcon also appears in the show.
“ FLUID ” is set to open on July 24 and shall continue to run on July 25 and 26 (1:00 pm and 7:00 pm) at the 5/F SDA Theater, School of Design and Arts Campus, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, 950 P. Ocampo St., Malate, Manila.
