a play about people living with HIV
by Ino Habana & Iscariot

Limited seats available

For the benefit of Take the Test, an awareness campaign on HIV.  Take the Test provides FREE HIV antibody testing, pre-test and post-test HIV counseling (one-on-one), effective referral, and follow-up.

PULSES is a play that weaves personal accounts, monologues, scenes, songs and poems. By creating a tapestry of whispers, cries and clamor, PULSES is a play that asks everyone to be aware - and to understand. It is a prayer for love, hope and acceptance.

PULSES is all about the narratives of people with HIV-AIDS. Despite it's simplicity (no spectacle and pretense), the narrative compels me to feel the texture of pain,hope, love acceptance and care - palpable! The play effectively articulates the complexities of body, globalization, home, relationships and sexualities of people with HIV-AIDS. It has its subtle and careful way of revealing the closet of HIV-AIDS epistemology in this country.
