AMIHAN'S READING SERIES
Theatre Aminhan continues their intimate and informal on-going play reading series to showcase Filipino plays and works. These readings bring theatre artists interested in Filipino culture together around a new play on the regular in Toronto.
Theatre Amihan hosts a play reading of the classic Tatarin by Filipino National Artist for Literature, Nick Joaquin. Tatarin is considered one of his most acclaimed and controversial literary works.
For our post-discussion, we will be comparing Tatarin with Hilot Means Healer by Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, who will be leading a talk-back and discussion as our guest artist.
We will explore the themes of Spanish colonialism, American colonialism, and Filipinx indigeneity and how they regard the masc and femme, and the power of ritual.
