ACC fellows Tess Jamias (actor, director-dramaturg, 2006 grantee) and Bong Cabrera (film–theater actor, 2010 grantee) delivers provocative solo performances this September in "MONOBLOCKED: Monodramas in High Definitions."
A work-in-progress by KOLAB CO.’s formidable team of independent artists, the event explores the form of the “solo show” in the following genres--the Musical, the Gay play, the Melodrama, the Classics, and the Cringe Binge. Tess and Bong are joined by equally-intense performers Kath Castillo, Marjorie Lorico, and Wenah Nagales in this company of theater “machinators” who take inspiration from various spaces and texts to piece together an insightful and stimulating contemporary theater.
