Roeder Camanag to retell El Filibusterismo

For the 7th time, Roeder Camanag reprises his role as Don Simoun in Gantimpala Theater's restaging of El Filibusterismo, based on the second novel of Dr. Jose Rizal that sparked revolution during the Philippine Spanish era. El Filibusterismo is also the comeback of Crisostomo Ibarra under the guise of Don Simoun.
Roeder Camanag, who just finished another patriotic stint in "Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini," the role will set the audience to an eye-opener and deeper study of Rizal's novel.

“El Filibusterismo, whose alternate title is The Reign of Greed, is a very dark novel, it was set in a dark time, written during the dark days of
the Spanish tyranny, the themes progression is wheeled by an unseen dark force, a force that is so powerful that it controls even the characters trivial actions and choices that often lead to nothing but tragic endings. This unseen and destructive force is greed,” said director Jose Jeffrey Camañag.

“It is the intention of this production to reconstruct the face of greed as painted by the great Jose Rizal in this novel and to resonate Rizal’s definition of greed as the key evil that chains and enslaves the mind, heart and soul of a society away Camañag continues.
Watching El Filibusterismo will be an excellent approach to teach the students of history through artistic presentation and languages will give more appreciation on the messages of Dr. Rizal. Watch El Filibusterismo by Gantimpala Theater in the following dates:


November 14 & 15 - AFP Theater 9AM/12NN
