Director's Notes: Rumination on Five Ruminations on S. Beckett's En Attendant Godot. 2015
A meditation on waiting – on arrivals and departures.
Went beyond decoding Beckett. We see what we desire. Perhaps, its not what Beckett could have meant in Godot, but what Godot could have meant/ mean to us.
A dear friend departing- that of shadows and light - never watching Godot. Mid-life professor decoding what is yet to arrive – always watching Godot.
Theater Students transitioning from Point A to Point Blanc – Waiting for GodoT. There's a sea of student actors in universities. After grad, how much of them will join us in the waiting?
Independent artists thriving, self-producing, moving, sometimes waiting, always waiting - for support.
There are princesses and whores waiting still.
Maybe it's about generosity, hugging, endless telling, hand-holding and mutual symbiotic spirit lifting.
To ease up any pain; 'Tis our joyful waiting.
Naghihintay ka ba kaya hindi ka umaalis o
hindi ka umaalis dahil pinaghihintay ka?
Zamboanga. Tacloban. Bunk houses. They were made to wait. Made to wait - because there is nothing out there. Stolen from them. Nothing out there. And so they wait.
The idea is not to wait but to move - to live.
Maraming salamat Tanghalang Ateneo. Maraming salamat sa mga artista - manlilikha.
