EVENT DESCRIPTION

Tanghalang Ateneo, the longest-running theater company of the Loyola Schools of the Ateneo de Manila University, caps off its 40th season, Sturm und Drang/Bagyo at Bagabag, with AKO: Alpha Kappa Omega, an adaptation of Mike De Leon's critically acclaimed film Batch 81 penned by Guelan Varela-Luarca and the Tanghalang Ateneo ensemble.

Batch 81, a modern classic in Philippine cinema screened on the Director's Fortnight of the 1982 Cannes Film Festival, follows the Alpha Kappa Omega fraternity's neophytes through their grueling initiation process, serving as a poignant critique of fraternity hazing and culture in the Philippines.

Aside from adapting the film into a play, two-time Palanca First Prize winner Guelan Varela-Luarca is also tasked to bring it to life at the Ateneo de Manila’s Rizal Mini Theater. Luarca's recent notable works include directing Desaparesidos in September 2018 and translating William Shakespeare's tragedy for Tanghalang Pilipino's 32nd season finale Coriolano. Theater veterans and TA alumni Ron Capinding and Katski Flores act alongside Tanghalang Ateneo’s promising stable of actors.
