This sculpture of the nameless Filipino revolutionaries stands for more than a hundred years now, yet the struggle for a true revolution is probably far from completion. The sculpture is now titled Alaala ng Bayang Filipino sa mga Bayani ng (18)96 (literally “Homage of the Filipino People to the Heroes of 96”) and was made by Ramon Lazaro Martinez in 1911.

In this scene from Laro (literally Game), an adaptation of A. Schnitzler’s La Ronde, the Model (Jay Gonzaga) tells his tale of having to pursue perfection because of his beauty while the Philanthropist (Vince de Jesus) disdains hearing pitiful stories – he rather seeks flaws for he finds perfection boring. The play casts the spotlight on gay life in conservative Philippines. The play is written by Floy Quintos.
