LIVIN’ LA VIDA IMELDA! “Livin’ La Vida Imelda”, my one-man performance about Manila and Imelda Marcos will be performed at my private performance studio in Malate, Manila.
“Living La Vida Imelda” is a multi-media monologue of musings about former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos and memories of life in 1970s Manila. We won’t talk about shoes very much but we’ll ponder over issues such as state sanctioned kitsch, hierarchies in human psychology and human rights, and the importance of winning beauty pageants in a developing nation. It will be a night of gossip, disco music, tragic facts and anecdotes so absurd that it’s got to be true.
Descend into this rabbit hole of Philippine history with me. Have a drink. Have a laugh. I’ll go a little mad and a little off topic but I assure you, the journey will be fun, funny, and perhaps even educational.
Review: “Philosopher Gilles Deleuze spoke about creative expression as a form of resistance—resistance against general opinion, against stupidity and against the status quo. For Celdran, art is a form of resistance, which he undertakes one step, wink and nudge at a time.” – Marlyne Sahakian, Art Asia-Pacific
