Pasko naman, anak, a sustainable eco-theatrical virtual performance, aims to shed light on the role of women beyond the home, is slated to be streamed beginning Saturday, April 9, 2022.

Written primarily in Filipino and Kapampangan, the 45-minute production follows Thelma, a former waste picker, her daughters, Leah and Tessa and their hardships in keeping their family afloat. It unravels the conflict between the matriarchal family and Leah’s son during Noche Buena. A nostalgic narrative that hits close to home, Pasko naman, anak brings the essence of Christmas in summertime – togetherness and reconnection despite differences.

An empowering performance, it looks at women not just as mothers, daughters and sisters, but as advocates of inclusion, sustainability and eco-waste management. The budding artists likewise incorporated principles of ecology to create recyclable, biodegradable, restorative and regenerative performance spaces to capture and draw attention to the concerns surrounding the community and environment.

Pasko naman, anak was written and produced by by: THEATER, a production house founded by young student-artists from the Theater Arts and Production Design Programs of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. The show was in collaboration with the Benilde Service Learning Unit as well as EcoWaste Coalition, a network that partners with various communities to address crucial environmental issues such as waste and climate change.

Pasko naman, anak will run from Saturday, April 9, to Tuesday, April 12, 2022 and Thursday, April 14 to Saturday, April 16, 2022, every 6 p.m. It will also be streaming on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at 2 p.m.
