Place is political.

LUGAR: Counter-mapping San Roque and Mega Manila is a continuing project that problematizes dominant spatial narratives and cartographic representations of Mega-Manila. As the state and market convert and develop vast tracts of lands into profitable urban spaces, thousands of residents are displaced to make way for high-rise condominiums, malls, gated subdivisions and other new urban developments. This project uncovers everyday spaces of urban poor populations at risk using visual arts, mixed media and performance to communicate lived spaces thus counter-mapping mainstream depictions of metropolitan space.

A collaboration of Theater Arts and Geography students of the University of the Philippines Diliman with guest performers Bachan, Jess Santiago and Boyet de Mesa.

Open to the Public.
