Dulaang UP's "Lulu"


Here's a poster I recently art directed--including bloody Photoshop work. It's for Dulaang UP's upcoming play Lulu, written by Frank Wedekind. (Filipino translation by Joel Saracho)

From the press release: "Lulu is a story of a person who has no qualms about the body and its sexual needs. Lulu, who is the alluring woman in the English version and the captivating transsexual in Filipino, is a being able to explore and express her desires without compromise or guilt. Adored and lusted by men, women and creatures of the world, she takes them to a dance of bodily freedom, of the mind’s liberation and of utter ecstasy. But like any other person, Lulu searches for the other that could accept and understand her seemingly deviant nature."

Because of its sensitive themes, Lulu is for mature audiences only.

Che Ramos will play the title role in the English version, while Tuxqs Rutaquio does likewise for the Filipino version. Direction and choreography is by Dexter Santos.

Lulu will run from August 5 to August 23 at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero theater in UP-Diliman.

Additional poster design credits: Tuxqs Rutaquio (creative direction), Jojit Lorenzo (photography).
