A.I.D.S. is short for Ang Istoryang Dinebelop ng SAMASKOM, which is the longest-running comedy variety show in the Philippines staged by the organization based at the state university's College of Mass Communication. It features satirical bits about the country's socio-political landscape, including impersonations of famous personalities—do the names Inday Zara, Mare Kondon, and Maria T. Resa ring a bell? The show is also famous for its witty and very on-point social commentaries, which is part of its efforts to raise awareness on what's happening in our country. Its title, Live A.I.D.S., was inspired by "Live Aid," the fundraising concert for those affected by the Ethiopian famine.
Live AIDS 33: G na G sa 33 was first staged from June 21 to 23 with nine shows. It is directed by Deo Divinagracia.
Live AIDS 33: G na G sa 33 is on August 2 and 4 at Abelardo Hall, College of Music, University of the Philippines - Diliman. Tickets, priced at P550, are available through KTX. For more information, follow UP SAMASKOM on Facebook.
