The Passion of El Hulk Hogancito
TICKETS FOR THIS SHOW ARE ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS!
Jason Magabo Perez presents The Passion of El Hulk Hogancito, an exhaustive digression from traditional literary and performative practice. Part literary reading, part lecture, part homage to childhood heroes, and part performative historiography, this semiotic imbalance wrestles with authorship and manic obsession, presenting an historical momentthe murder conviction of two Filipina nurses in the 1970sas undeniably personal, traumatic and of course, always, of course, political.
The show will also feature CLICK by Allan S. Manalo, an eerie, twisted monologue about obsessive infatuation, Stevie Wonder, and frappuccinos. Written inside a Manila Starbucks, the anti-hero, Bick, performed by Dennis Rodis, is based on a true-life composite of a university student who failed to act upon his fantasies.
