vince tanada’s new masterpiece- “filipinas 1941”: soon!


bataan

The Bataan Death March. A long-forgotten but the most violent and tragic episode in the history of one nation.

Soldiers- Filipinos and Americans- and thousands and thousands of them- all died.

In one march of DEATH.

The year: 1941. The place: Filipinas (the Philippines).

One creative and powerful mind. One very beautiful mind will relieve the past- through his PEN.

VINCE TANADA.

One group of performing artists- young and raw and juicy talents- will combine in unison to interpret the meanings written in a PEN.

Act upon it and give their very souls.

THE PHILIPPINE STAGERS FOUNDATION.

One musician. With a very dramatic flow of feelings and melody, will give life to the PEN and the ACTORS.

He’ll give you a feeling of Deja Vu, via his music… via his rhythm.

PIPO CIFRA.

 

All-together, they will flow in one spirit, to once more, offer the most delicate but integral aspect in the past-

Wherein Filipinos and their American friends got lost in a battle and were put to shame…

But they just didn’t die there- their spirits LIVED and sparked a return to gain back a NATION.

And a General arrived, amidst the shores of Leyte province to redeem what was lost.

AND,

A NEW NATION WAS BORN.

 

Heroes never die. They only live FOREVERMORE.

 

Let the young people of today know about it.

Let the students learn more about it.

The new “hopes” of tomorrow will only embrace these heroes more- even though THEY’RE DEAD.

 

THE BATAAN DEATH MARCH, in “FILIPINAS 1941”

soon.

A NEW MASTERPIECE OF DIRECTOR-ACTOR VINCE TANADA.

Mr. Vince Tanada’s words after finishing writing his new play “Filipinas 1941” while in Boracay:

“Mark the date June 9, 2014. I finished another brainchild – Filipinas 1941. My art makes me immortal. I’m neither 30 nor 40, I’ll forever be young, infinite, immeasurable. I’m Vince Tañada, hate me or love me I AM HERE TO STAY because of my heart, because of my passion, because of Filipinas 1941. Thank you Boracay. I owe you one. Now, it’s time to celebrate!”
