Dula-Daluyan 2007

T.S. Eliot, in one of his essays, explains that the evolution of tradition is dependent on what is being produced at present in respect to what has been produced in the past. One must be able to understand and take into consideration the previous occupation of artistic production that has come to be known as tradition. With this in mind, one will be able to come up with works that are relevant and meaningful enough to eventually be considered part of the growing tradition of arts and culture. It is in this light that the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) moves forward with this year’s DULA-DALUYAN Youth Theater Festival, focusing its energies in steering the upcoming generation of young people towards the path of creativity and artistry, developing this generation’s expressions that will eventually emerge as significant in the expansion of our rich tradition of arts and culture.

The time has come to create a new path. With theater and the arts as the vehicle that will drive through the many roads of human creativity and expression, we speed forward in this journey of a tradition that is not only developed aesthetically but is also enriched with meaning and values important in the development of the young people and of the society as a whole.

The PETA Youth Arm takes on the steering wheel, taking the festival on a joyride of learning and experience. Each and everyone’s craft undergoes a process of polishing and revving up as we parade and showcase our vehicles of expression in this 3-day long drive. We take on the expression of the streets as it is time to take the expression of the youth out of its classrooms and homes, and onto to streets where everyone can see and appreciate what is there to be offered. It’s going to be a new and different path, driving not only forward but taking U-turns as well to recall and recognize the tradition of the past and provide an ample jumpstart for the long journey. The festival aims to guide the youth in making the right turns, understanding the flow and counterflow of issues such as gender, rights & participation, identity, family, relationships, etc.

Join us as we take this generation of youth forward. Create new paths with us and add more fun and excitement to this joyride. Keep in mind that it is not about getting there first, but knowing that a smooth drive with everyone safe in the backseat can be as good as flying.

Dula-Daluyan 2007 takes place on December 7 to 9, 2007 at the PETA Theater Center, #5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City.
