Ever contemplated the difference between ‘price’ and ‘value’? Ever watched a ‘special performance lecture’? How about drinking milk in a theater while doing all of the above? Now you can.
The PETA Theater Center, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and British Council Philippines present The Price of Everything by British performer Daniel Bye, showing at the PETA Studios on Thursday, July 10, 7:00 PM.
The Price of Everything has been performed to critical acclaim at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and enjoyed a sold-out run as part of the Northern Stage at St. Stephens Festival last year.
Profound, provocative and definitely funny, Bye becomes the proverbial gadfly through this one-man show. Touted as a ‘special performance lecture,’ the show combines stand-up comedy, satire and storytelling.
Bye is a theatre-maker from North East England whose material tackles big political and philosophical issues with naivety and reckless abandon. As part of the show, Bye asks the audience serious questions about ideology and money, while offering them all free glasses of milk!
More than just the show, Bye will also be giving a workshop on July 11 at 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., also at the PETA Theater Center. The workshop explores techniques in creating solo performances rooted in the performers own advocacies.
The Price of Everything was cited by United Kingdom daily The Times, as the “future of British theatre.” Manila audiences are invited to watch the Philippine premiere of what British paper The Independent reviewed as “ Is this show worth the ticket price? A resounding yes.”
Tickets to the show are P250.
The workshop fee, inclusive of one ticket to the show, is P1,000 per participant.
PETA Studios are located at the PETA Theater Center, No. 5, Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City.
