Cosmopolitanism, Theatre, and the Philippines
Cosmopolitanism, Theater, and the Philippines: Performing Community in a World of Strangers by Sir Anril Pineda Tiatco is an attempt towards a theorization of cosmopolitanism via Philippine theater. The book's concept is premised on a sense of belonging in a community of strangers, which comes from the firm conviction that theater, by nature, prepares its audience to engage in a community that is both local and global. The vibrant Manila theater scene is used as a takeoff point in articulating this argument.
