This All-Original Play Looks Into Online and Offline Dating

It's a pay-what-can-show!

( With the advent technology, finding love has taken a rather unusual turn. You can now "book" a date by swiping right or left, get matched with your future S.O. thanks to the help of an algorithm, or get to know more about a person just by logging into social media. Marikina-based theater company Ikarus Theater Collaborative sheds light on these situations through two all-original plays: Compass and Alter, which will both run from February 28 to March 7 at Tago Jazz Café and Malingap Central Food Hall in Quezon City and Commune in Makati City. Admission is on a pay-what-you-can scheme.


Compass, which is written and directed by Kit Singson, follow the story of a young woman who tries to find her sense of identity by looking at the history of her online accounts. Justin Ayran's Alter, on the other hand, compares online dating and real-life dating. These shows were first staged at DITO: Bahay ng Sining, Ikarus Theater Collaborative's home in Marikina City, during their festival of plays in October 2019.

Compass and Alter run on February 28 at Commune in Makati City, February 29 at Catch272 in Quezon City, March 6 at Tago Jazz Café in Quezon City, and March 7 at Malingap Central Food Hall in Quezon City. All shows are at 8 p.m. For more information, follow Ikarus Theater Collaborative on Facebook.
