Isko’t Iska in the new normal

Publication material from Isko’t Iska/Facebook

Together with the UPLB Writers’ Club, Karma Komiks, and SAKBAYAN, join Isko’t Iska as it once again turns the stage into an avenue that educates its viewers about current events and issues in its 43rd installation: “ISKO’T ISKA: MGA ODA NG PILIPINO SA PAKIKIBAKA.” For the first time in its history, this episode of Isko’t Iska will be aired online. 

This year, instead of performing onstage, Isko’t Iska will showcase clips from its previous performances from 2010 to 2019. This production aims to open the eyes of many Filipinos about the social injustices we currently face and how these affect different sectors of the community, particularly of those who are frequently abused and mistreated. 

Watch the play live every 8:00 PM from February 26 to 27.
