Cordillera Day and the indigenous people’s theater

Theater, in Philippine history, especially in times of political turbulence, has become a potent medium to express harsh realities such as oppression and exploitation, and to prescribe possible solutions and alternatives as the people’s response. Theater encapsulates situations of an individual or group of people needing resolutions, and the stage becomes a venue of artistic expression of a people in conflict with external forces and their clamor to change their condition. More importantly, theater connects actors to the audience more intimately and the interaction is immediate and visible.
